BLEEP Blended learning for prisoners

BLEEP

Blended Learning Environment for European Prisoners

 

Synopsis

BLEEP is a project about digital inclusion that foresees the creation and implementation of an innovative, creative, Europe-focused, blended learning platform for all prisoners and ex-prisoners. This project will contribute to the prison staff professional development, namely their own lifelong learning plans and digital skills. Moreover, BLEEP project integrates educational and reintegration learning processes which will have a positive impact on the development of skills and on the reintegration chances of prisoners.

 

Objectives

  • To design a tailor-made blended learning environment that can be used by all European prisoners
  • To design a universal environment, in which the learning process for each prisoner can be monitored, aiming at more effectiveness
  • To develop mechanisms to monitor the effectiveness of adult learning policies and to track the progress of learners
  • To support the setting up of and access to upskilling pathways in correctional settings/institutions
  • To extend and develop the competences of correctional staff who support offenders learning

 

Expected outcomes

  • Research document
  • Learners journey: inside-out ( learning plans are based on the needs of the offenders)
  • BLEEP platform (the platform will be tested in at least five European countries during the lifetime of the project with the aim to be easily expanded and transferrable to all European countries)
  • Facilitators journey: inside-out (a lifelong learning plan is developed for prison staff)
  • Policy recommendations in each country, including meetings with policy makers in each country of the project partnership but also at the broader European level)
