The Virtual European Prison School (VEPS) Project was developed through the Lifelong Learning Program – Grundtvig Multilateral Projects of the European Union. The project’s broad aims were to increase participation and widen access to education in European prisons. Its primary actions involved the transnational transfer of best existing practice and the establishment of a web-based Virtual Prison School.
The project lasted from October 2007 to December 2008 and involved a wide range of prison educators from across Europe. The coordinating partner was European Prison Education Association (EPEA). The other project partners were prison education services, organisations and bodies from Bulgaria, Czech Republic, England, France, Greece, Ireland, Norway and Sweden.
