YAS member recognised for partnership with Scottish Prison Service and Fife College

A project set up by YAS member Anne Schwan has been honoured with the Partnership Award at the 2016 Herald Higher Education Awards.  The project, in which University student volunteers are paired with prisoners at HMP Edinburgh for one-on-one English language, literacy, and creative writing tuition, is the result of a partnership between Edinburgh Napier University, Scottish Prison Service, and Fife College.

The awards were hosted by Scottish broadcaster Sally Magnusson at an event at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow.
