AccessEd’s educational services are designed to share academic expertise and address challenges in the education system.

Our educational services range from professional development training for researchers, to the design and delivery of bespoke academic programmes.

Research-Based Curricula

Research Based Curricula (RBC) programmes support teachers by designing and sharing schemes of work that link the national curriculum to university research. We are currently working with Sheffield Hallam University and HeppSY+, a part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP), funded by the Office for Students.

Prisoner Education Programme

The Prisoner Education Project (PEP) Programme seeks to motivate prisoners to engage in learning through small-group seminars led by a PhD supervisor. We believe the PEP Programme model supports the change processes and outcomes identified by the Prisoner Learning Alliance’s Theory of Change for prison education, and we are currently looking for partners to pilot the programme in 2018/19. To learn more, see our blog post on the project for the Prioners’ Education Trust.
