Streamlining Prisoner Education Trust’s IT Infrastructure

Prisoner Education Trust (PET) provide distance learning opportunities to prisoners in England and Wales, helping people in prison achieve over 40,000 awards.


The Problem

As prison-based learning becomes more digital, PET needed to upgrade their IT systems to allow for more efficient delivery of their service. The system needed to be suitable for use across multiple sites where facilities may be limited.

Solving It

We recommended a cloud-based Microsoft system that allowed PET to work remotely and rely less on their centralised systems.


The Outcome

As a result, PET’s operations are much more efficient, streamlining the process for both the internal team and prisoners.

The cloud-based software also proved useful during the Coronavirus pandemic, with remote working becoming seamless and allowing the London and Cardiff offices to work closer than ever before.

Plus, the move to a digital system meant PET were still able to offer their vital services in a COVID-safe manner.

“OfficeTechHub has been an effective partner in helping us increasing our capacity and reliability of our IT infrastructure, which has been crucial to our success in transforming our working methods over recent years.”
