The Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice has commissioned a review of prison education in England and Wales to examine how it supports effective rehabilitation of different segments of prison learners (for example young adults, older prisoners, female offenders, short sentenced prisoners and longer sentence/life sentenced prisoners).
The review has been established to examine:
- scope, quality and effectiveness of current education provision in prisons and Young Offender Institutions (YOIs) holding young adults. In particular the review will consider how provision supports learner progression and the successful rehabilitation of different segments of prison learners;
- domestic and international evidence of what works well in prison education which demonstrably supports rehabilitation of different segments of prison learners
- options for future models of education services in prisons which emphasise effective rehabilitation of different segments of prison learners
