Since 2016, LJMU has been part of the Learning Together network. LJMU delivers a unique university-based programme bringing together those who have personal and professional experience of the criminal justice system to learn and work together.
Our programme is community-based and we are proud to have worked with over 105 students to date, raising their aspirations by encouraging and supporting their engagement with society through education and creativity.
LJMU creates a safe space for criminal justice academics, students, service users and practitioners to come together and learn from one another to help form a community of understanding through shared life experience and professional practice.
Learning Together at LJMU has been transformative for those who have taken part, helping to better integrate individuals back into society and creating a pathway to further educational opportunities. For academics and practitioners the programme provides insight and a deeper understanding of the impact of the criminal justice system on the individual.
The university is committed to Learning Together as a positive programme for educational improvement. We are supporting the staff and students involved in our programme and offer our deepest condolences to our colleagues across the network, especially at the Cambridge University Institute of Criminology.
