A Second Chance. A Review of Education and Supporting Arrangements within Units for Juveniles Managed by HM Prison Service

Her Majesty's Inspectorate Of Prisons For England And Wales


This report, based upon Prisons Inspectorate and OFSTED inspections of education and training provisions in all establishments holding children, is the first objective external assessment of that central objective, in the initial phase of the new regime. It needs to be recognised that it reflects inspections carried out between April 2000 and March 2001. It is therefore an account of developments taking place in a rapidly changing system which was learning to cope with new demands and opportunities. It provides a snapshot of particular establishments at different stages in this process: it is a progress report, rather than a verdict.

The report records the progress that has been made within this short time in improving outcomes for children held in Prison Service custody. But it also shows that there is still a long way to go before the Prison Service is able to deliver effective education and training for the 3,000 children held in its care.
