21 July 2017: handbook for use from September 2017 published. Updated to take account of changes in the revised ‘Expectations’, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons guidance for the inspection of prisons for men.

This handbook describes the main activities Ofsted inspectors undertake when they inspect learning and skills and work activities in prisons and young offender institutions in England as part of joint inspections led by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons (HMI Prisons).

The handbook sets out the judgements that inspectors will make and report on. These reports contribute to the section on ‘purposeful activity’ in the HMI Prisons inspection reports.
