star this property answer text <p>Under the new model for education delivery for prisons in England, which went live on 1 April 2019, prison managers are responsible for decision-making about their curriculum, how it is organised and who delivers it. The information requested is held by each prison individually and could only therefore be provided at disproportionate cost</p><p> </p><p>The Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) enables Governors to commission innovative, specialist or one-off education provision for their establishment. The DPS is an electronic system used to purchase commonly used goods and services. Unlike traditional frameworks which are closed to new entrants for their duration the DPS allows suppliers to apply to join or decide to leave at any time during its term.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Her Majesty’s Prisons and Probation Service (HMPPS) has set up a new team within its assurance function that is responsible for co-ordinating the response to HM Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP) reports.</p><p> </p><p>The team has developed a risk based, three-tiered approach to monitoring progress against HMIP recommendations. Establishments are now subject to self-assessment exercises, face to face challenge meetings, or in depth follow up audits to determine how well they have responded to recommendations from their most recent HMIP inspection. The analysis of this work is provided to the Prison Management Committee and the Agency Leadership Team, to inform HMPPS on how well prisons are responding to HMIP recommendations, and to identify areas where progress is of concern.</p><p> </p><p>The HMPPS assurance teams also carry out audit visits ahead of HMIP Independent Reviews of Progress and regularly meet with HMIP colleagues to review progress made on implementing recommendations</p><p> </p><p>The HMPPS Prison Group Director structure is designed to improve support to prisons through smaller groups with closer oversight and grip of assurance processes, including implementation of HMIP recommendations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Governor autonomy over curriculum and budget was a key recommendation of Dame Sally Coates’ review of prison education in 2016, alongside other recommendations to ensure high standards across the estate. The Government has taken these recommendations on board and taken steps to further improve the consistency of education and training across the prison estate, whilst at the same time providing more autonomy for governors.</p><p> </p><p>On 1 April 2019, we introduced a new Prison Education and Library Services Policy Framework in England that outlines the elements of service delivery that governors are duty bound to follow to ensure consistency. This includes, but is not limited to; mandatory assessments in maths and English for all prisoners, screening for Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (LDD) and ensuring that staff delivering learning receive effective Continuing Professional Development.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, we have introduced a new core common curriculum of English, maths, ICT and English for speakers of other languages. We have also appointed four Common Awarding Organisations (City &amp; Guilds; OCR; WAMITAB and Gateway Qualifications) in seven subjects. This means that a prisoner who starts a qualification in one prison will be able to complete it at another, rather than starting again as they move across the prison estate. This will also enable prisoners to follow their personal learning plan throughout the prison estate.</p><p> </p><p>Standards and consistency will ultimately be ensured through robust, regular inspections by Ofsted, which holds prisons to the same standards as mainstream further education provision and an accountability measure, which is under development.</p>

Prior to that, prison education was managed and delivered by the Offender Learning and Skills Service (OLASS) under contracts held by the Skills Funding Agency.</p><p> </p><p>From 2016, revised OLASS arrangements placed responsibility on the OLASS contractor to ensure that competent and appropriately qualified staff were in place to deliver and assess learning delivered.</p><p> </p><p>New education delivery contracts in England are now in place: these were procured in succession to the OLASS arrangements that expired at the end of March. The new contracts require that all suppliers must operate a range of human resource and supplier personnel development arrangements that focus on establishing and maintaining a cadre of high-quality personnel capable of delivering an outstanding service</p>
