Although the Youth Custody Service monitors performance at Rainsbrook Secure Training Centre, the decision to change the education provider from Novus to Nacro was made by MTC as the private provider at Rainsbrook who are empowered to take such decisions. Nacro commenced education provision at the centre on 5 May 2021.
