To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, whether each prison is required to maintain a record of the courses offered to prisoners.
Prisons are required to maintain a record of the courses offered to prisoners. All prisons under the Prison Education Framework (PEF) contract are required to agree an annual delivery plan which sets out the services to be provided. Once the delivery plan is finalised a copy of the curriculum is uploaded onto an HMPPS Management Information System which is then visible and available to all prisons to support better co-ordination of the offer prisoners receive.
We want prisons to provide offenders with the tools they need for successful rehabilitation, including education opportunities that prepare them for employment on release.
