Volume 460: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice if she will revise the prison orders applying to young female offenders to make specific provision for their education. (138086)

The provision of education for young female offenders is set out in the under-18 version of the offender's learning journey, the document that specifies the service to be delivered by the Learning and Skills Council's providers. The offender's learning journey requires providers to assess the learning needs of offenders, providing a service personalised to their needs. The offender's learning journey is currently being updated. No consequential amendments will need to be made to Prison Service Order 4950 on the Care and Management of Young People.
