The framework sets out how Ofsted, together with Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons and the Care Quality Commission, will inspect secure training centres from 1 April 2019.

We updated the framework after running a consultation from July to August 2018. Read the consultation proposals and the outcome report for more information about what has changed.
