Project Title

To study methods of educating and supporting young offenders in French speaking Europe

Year of Fellowship - 1984


During my fellowship I visited prisons In France where youths mixed with adults and Swiss prisons which were far more luxurious than my hotel! I found ideas of practical teaching in the "foyers" particularly interesting and was influenced by them when I was eventually appointed to manage Newcastle's population of children with no school place including a large population of permanently excluded children.
