21 July 2017: This guidance was 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 guidance explains how Ofsted inspectors will support and challenge prisons that are judged as inadequate or requires improvement in their learning and skills and work activities.

Read more about the main activities Ofsted inspectors undertake when they inspect these activities in prisons and young offender institutions in the Handbook for the inspection of learning and skills and work activities in prisons and young offender institutions.
