Prison Education Programmes

Mr. Andrew Turner: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many hours per week on average (a) basic skills training and (b) purposeful activity are undertaken per inmate at each (i) prison and (ii) young offenders institution; and what his targets are for each establishment. [198277]

Paul Goggins: The average number of weekly hours spent by prisoners on basic skills and overall purposeful activity is shown in the table.

While prisons are not allocated targets for the number of basic skills hours per prisoner, each establishment's target for purposeful activity is shown.

A number of establishments listed have not recorded their basic skills hours. This is because the activities involved may be counted differently at local level under other categories of purposeful activity, and their inclusion would skew the representation of the table. These non-recording establishments are still delivering basic skills awards.

The way the Prison Service measures progress in prisoner education has changed from the hours of education-related purposeful activity, to achievements which reflect positive outcomes for prisoners prior to release. In recent years Key Performance Indicators have been introduced to measure the number of prisoners achieving basic skills qualifications and also the number leaving prison with an education, training or employment place arranged.
