||<p>In May last year, we published our plans for reforming prison education and improving
employment outcomes for ex-offenders in the Education and Employment Strategy. The
strategy created a system in which each prisoner was set on a path to employment,
with prison education and work geared towards employment on release from the outset.</p><p>
</p><p>In line with this, we introduced new performance measures to record the rates
of employment for prison leavers at six weeks post-release. The Department is scheduled
to publish the statistical data for this on 25 July in an annex to Community Performance
Statistics on Gov.uk, at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/prison-and-probation-trusts-performance-statistics"
