We are fundamentally reforming rehabilitation services by opening up the market to new providers and incentivising them to focus relentlessly on reducing reoffending. For the first time in recent history virtually every offender released from custody will receive statutory supervision and rehabilitation in the community. We remain on track to deliver these key reforms by 2015.</p> more like this

This includes the Primary Literacy Project, aimed at improving the literacy levels of pupils most at risk of literacy difficulties and dyslexia. 736 teachers and teaching assistants have attended school training sessions over the two years of the project. The British Dyslexia Association training department also delivered around 380 courses to approximately 6,500 teachers during 2014.</p><p> </p>
