star this property answer text <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" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/prison-and-probation-trusts-performance-statistics</a></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government publishes quarterly statistics on violence in prison, and a more detailed annual breakdown, and both are available at:<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/safety-in-custody-quarterly-update-to-december-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/safety-in-custody-quarterly-update-to-december-2018</a>. The total numbers of assaults on staff in 2012 and 2018 can be found in table 3.1 of <em>Assaults in prison custody 2000 to 2018</em>, and table 3.8 gives a breakdown into assaults on officers and assaults on other staff. I regret that the way this data is recorded means it is not possible to provide the further breakdown requested without incurring disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is taking unprecedented action to improve safety in prisons. We have recruited over 4,700 more prison officers since October 2016, and we now have the greatest number in post since early 2012. The Challenge, Support and Intervention Plan case management process for prisoners at risk of violence has been mandated for all prisons to help staff to manage violent prisoners and those identified as posing a raised risk of being violent.</p><p> </p><p>We are investing an extra £70 million to improve safety, security and decency, and equipping officers with PAVA incapacitant spray and body-worn cameras to help prevent serious harm to staff and prisoners when dealing with violent incidents. We are improving perimeter security and introducing new x-ray scanners, drug-detection dogs and dedicated search teams to address the supply of drugs that we know are fuelling much of the violence in custody.</p>

star this property answer text <p>One year ago, our Education and Employment Strategy set out plans to transform the way prisoners develop the skills they need to secure employment on release.</p><p> </p><p>Since then, we have introduced the New Futures Network (NFN), which brokers partnerships between prisons and employers in England and Wales. The Network places prisoners in jobs ahead of their release as well as facilitating Release On Temporary Licence (ROTL) placements, which offer continuity and can lead to immediate employment on release.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, our new ROTL framework aims to increase the number of people these opportunities are available to by allowing more prisoners to access ROTL sooner and for longer.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Drug testing is an essential element of the HMPPS drug strategy and provides us with robust evidence on the prevalence of drug misuse. It can be used in support of security measures, to identify and signpost into drug treatment, monitor treatment compliance and act as an incentive to engage in treatment and drug free living.</p><p>HMPPS continues to explore new methodologies to develop our mandatory and voluntary drug testing frameworks enabling us to be responsive to the changing patterns of drug misuse in prisons. This includes the misuse of prescribed medication, and the dynamic market in psychoactive substances.</p><p>Data and information on drug testing is routinely published as part of the normal publication schedule which can be found here <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/annual-hm-prison-and-probation-service-digest-2017-to-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/annual-hm-prison-and-probation-service-digest-2017-to-2018</a>.
