|Abstract: ||This report draws together a compelling body of evidence from prisoner learners and other stakeholders which
demonstrates the value of sport as a rehabilitative tool in prison settings, specifically in relation to educational and employment opportunities. It is recognised that while sport alone will not necessarily prevent reoffending, it offers an effective and powerful way
in which to embed numeracy and literacy, promote higher level learning and motivate prisoners who may be difficult to engage in
other resettlement, educational or psychological interventions.|
