Secure Training Centres (STCs) play an important role in helping young people to reform and turn their lives around. They typically cater for younger offenders with multiple or complex needs, and therefore have smaller units and higher staff ratios than some other youth establishments.

The estimated average annual cost per place over the 5 year contract period at Rainsbrook STC is £136k and at Medway STC it is £138k. These figures are based on the bid price, uplifted in line with forecasted inflation.
