Vocvo international training week ‘Education behind Belgian bars’ – Registration open

From Monday 24 April to Friday 28 April 2018, Vocvo (Flemish support center for adult education) organizes an international training week on prison education. This training will provide an idea of how prison education is organised in Flemish prisons. Particular focus will be on interaction between the participants. The main goal is to learn from each other. To facilitate this, we provide you with a view on the Flemish prison education system. This view will be the starting point for further discussion and exchange.


The training week takes place in Mechelen (Belgium) at the offices of Vocvo. There will be 4 visits to prisons in or close to Mechelen. All transportation to the prisons will be arranged.

Who can participate?

The training is organised for teachers and coordinators in prison education in Europe. We welcome different nationalities! Please note that the common language used for this training will be English. Knowledge of the English language (listening and speaking) is needed to take part in this training course.
