One learner tells his tale

HMP Long Lartin - Offender Learning



Adam, a prisoner at HMP Long Lartin, tells the story of how education helped him and gave him a brighter future. 

“Given a life sentence early in 2007, I was all but written off. Fast forward eight years and I am sitting in my cell with a first class honours degree proudly displayed on the wall, years of consistent ‘model’ prisoner behaviour behind me and a progressive transfer imminent as I work towards release. During many solitary hours of work – tough to motivate myself for in the early days, I found in myself qualities hitherto unsuspected: discipline, perseverance, determination and the harder I tried, the better my results; my confidence grew and the world began to look different.”

Adam recieved education through the Milton Keynes College OLASS scheme.
