The indicator was not used in the day-to-day management of prisons and NOMS had concerns over the burden on the frontline of collecting the information. Indicators introduced into prison SLAs in respect of rehabilitation, resettlement and work in prisons provide a better demonstration of the efforts to equip prisoners to be less likely to offend on release.</p><p> </p><p>Work in prisons is a key priority to ensure prisoners are engaged purposefully whilst they are in custody. It also gives them the opportunity to learn skills and a work ethic which can increase their chances of finding employment on release, a key element to reducing reoffending.</p><p> </p><p>The number of prisoners working in industrial activity in public sector prisons increased from around 8,600 in 2010-11 to around 9,700 in 2012-13. This delivered an increase in the total hours worked in industrial activities from 10.6 million hours to 13.1 million hours. The average hours per week spent in education has increased since 2010.</p><p> </p><p>In addition there are substantial numbers of prisoners who work to keep prisons running on tasks such as cooking, serving meals, maintenance and cleaning.</p><p> </p><p>Our reforms to the Incentives and Earned Privileges national policy framework came into effect in adult prisons on 1 November 2013. Prisoners will be expected to engage in purposeful activity, as well as demonstrate a commitment towards their rehabilitation, reduce their risk of reoffending, behave well and help others if they are to earn privileges.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Figures are published in the NOMS Annual Report Management Information Addendum: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/225225/mi-addendum.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/225225/mi-addendum.pdf</a></p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Learning and skills at HMP Wormwood Scrubs has been delivered by a number of providers, through contracts let by the Skills Funding Agency, during this period. For the academic years 2010/11 and 2011/12, the Offender Learning and Skills Service (OLASS) contract for London was held by Kensington and Chelsea College. For the academic years 2012/13, 2013/14 and the first part of 2014/15, the OLASS contract was held by A4e Ltd. From 2 February 2015, The Manchester College has held the OLASS contract for London.</p><p>The Skills Funding Agency introduced funding changes that base payment to providers on learner achievement when new prison education contracts (OLASS4) commenced in August 2012. Prior to this, providers were paid on the basis of the teaching hours they were programmed to deliver. Direct comparisons between OLASS funding prior to the 2012/13 academic year and now cannot be made.</p><p>The table below sets out OLASS initial contract values for HMP Wormwood Scrubs from the 2012/13 academic year.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Academic Year</p></td><td><p>OLASS initial contract values for HMP Wormwood Scrubs</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012/13</p></td><td><p>£1,112,600</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013/14</p></td><td><p>£1,581,000</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014/15</p></td><td><p>£1,360,600</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><strong>Notes:</strong></p><p> </p><p>1) Figures rounded to nearest 000s</p><p> </p><p>2) In 2012/13 the Agency did not include details of prison level allocations within its contract documentation.

This sets out the value expected to be used for delivery of adult OLASS programme at the prison.</p><p> </p><p>4) In 2014/15 the Agency has held 2 contracts for delivery of adult OLASS. The first contract was for the period 1 August 2014 to 31 January 2015. The second is for the period 1 February 2015 to 31 July 2015. The figure given is for the adult OLASS programme elements of these contracts for use at the prison.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The overall value of the OLASS contract for HMP Wormwood Scrubs changed, during the 2013/14 academic year and after January 2014, as set out in the table below.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Initial contract for 2013/14 for HMP Wormwood Scrubs</p></td><td><p>£1,581,000</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Variation 1</p></td><td><p>£1,852,000</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Variation 2</p></td><td><p>£979,000</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><strong>Notes:</strong></p><p> </p><p>1) Figures rounded to nearest 000s</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Art, Design and Media Studies were taught at HMP Wormwood Scrubs as part of the OLASS learning offer during the first part of the 1014/15 academic year: there was no art, design and media department at the prison.
