star this property answer text <p>The Youth Justice Board (YJB) is planning to stipulate the future collection of ethnicity data based on the ‘18+1’ ethnicity categories used in the 2011 Census (which includes ‘Gypsy or Irish Traveller’ as a separate category) as part of its Annual Data Recording Guidance. This guidance will be issued to Local Authority Youth Offending Teams (YOTs) by the start of the new reporting year in April 2017. Once this guidance is issued, YOTs, the YJB and the secure estate will need to make changes to their various IT systems. This requires updating over 150 systems and the technical standards between them.</p><p> </p><p>The YJB estimate that the changes will be implemented by spring 2018. These changes will enable YOTs to report using 18+1 data on all young people receiving a new order, whether or not they were previously known to the YOT.</p><p> </p><p>We will consider dependencies with existing IT systems, both within the youth justice system and with other local IT systems, and identify the feasibility and indicative costs as part of this process.</p>

We have taken steps to empower governors so they have freedom over internal levers and polices to increase employment opportunities, and we will hold them to account for the outcomes achieved. We will also give governors control of education budgets so they are able to choose their education provider. Education providers in YOIs also have contracted responsibilities to work alongside Governors to identify suitable education, training and employment pathways and to work with organisations in communities to realise opportunities for young people leaving custody.</p> more like this
