City Hall has no direct jurisdiction over the further education funding for prisons or young offender institutions, as this sits with the Ministry of Justice and outside the remit of the Adult Education budget.

However, the Skills for Londoner Capital prospectus did include offenders among those disadvantaged groups with whom the fund recipients could work, and £145,000 has been awarded to HMP Brixton and HMP Wormwood Scrubs.
