Sentenced prisoners can be released on temporary licence to attend places of work, provided they meet certain criteria.</p><p> </p><p>Prisons must be places of rehabilitation, which will ultimately reduce reoffending. Our Education and Employment strategy sets out how we will transform our approach to ensure prisoners develop the skills they need to secure employment on release.
