Curriculum Development

To develop the Prison Safe Curriculum, the Consortium will draft a Report on the needs of correctional staff and probation officers as well as on the experiences of LGBTIQ prisoners in Cyprus, Portugal, and Greece.

The report will provide a comprehensive framework regarding the scientific approach to the Prison Safe Curriculum, which shall focus on the following topics:

  • Why the focus on LGBTIQ prisoners
  • International, European and National Standards and Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners
  • LGBTIQ people in prisons’ experiences of discrimination, stigma and isolation
  • Prison operations and LGBTIQ: improving prison and probation processes
  • Best Practices and Inspiring Approaches

A trainer’s guide will also be developed parallel to the Curriculum so as to assist trainers in delivering the Curriculum during the Prison Safe Seminars.
