star this property answer text <p>HM Prison and Probation workforce statistics (which contains staffing figures in public sector prisons but not in privately managed prisons) are published quarterly. The figures are broken down by establishment and by prison category including male Young Offender Institutions (YOIs) for those aged 15-17. All staff working with children have to undergo an enhanced DBS check as part of the vetting process before taking up such roles. The latest publication can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hm-prison-and-probation-service-workforce-quarterly-september-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hm-prison-and-probation-service-workforce-quarterly-september-2018</a></p><p> </p><p>Attached are tables showing the staff numbers at YOIs and details on the numbers of those dismissed or disciplined. Values of 2 or fewer have not been included to avoid the possibility of identification of individuals and to prevent disclosure in accordance with the Data Protection Act, 1998.</p><p> </p><p>In relation to conduct and discipline cases this meant a breakdown of the reasons behind the actions could not be provided due to the very low numbers involved. Please also note that since June 2016 HMPPS has taken over the running of Medway Secure Training Centre and 151 FTE staff transferred in. In September 2017, 59 FTE staff transferred in to the newly created Youth Custody Service.</p><p> </p><p>All prison officers working in under 18 YOIs currently undergo a young person specific and child-centred Prison Officer Entry Level Training (POELT) course. This course incorporates both the Working with Young People in Custody (WYPC) course and Minimising and Managing Physical Restraint (MMPR) training elements. The structure of the 10 week course allows learners to understand the ethos, values, morals and ethics that are integral to working with young people.</p><p> </p><p>We are introducing a new Youth Justice Specialist role and are providing funding for every Prison Officer in the Youth Custody Service to undertake a distance-learning university-accredited qualification in youth justice so that they can transition them to this role. Supervising Officers will also be funded to undertake this training and transition to the new role on level transfer. All staff undertaking the qualification will be offered the opportunity to continue their study for another year to achieve a full foundation degree, fully-funded by the Youth Custody Service (YCS). There are over 300 frontline staff currently enrolled on this qualification and we will fund 250 places on this qualification per year for staff in the youth secure estate over the next four years. We intend for this to be the new standard training for frontline officers in the YCS by 2023</p><p> </p>

This required the officers to complete a two-week training course. These officers will support new recruits and ensure good practice is delivered consistently across the 10 jails. The team will provide advice and encouragement to inexperienced officers to build their confidence, particularly in their relationships with prisoners. The team is also supporting all staff to get the basics right and meet consistently high standards in routine tasks such as cell checks.</p> more like this
