§ The Earl of Sandwich
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What opportunities there are for expanding the hours currently devoted to education in HM Prison Wandsworth, including evening classes. [HL2989]
§ Lord Rooker
Wandsworth prison expects to deliver some 8,000 teaching hours through its education contractor in 2001–02. The number of hours to be delivered in 2002–03 is still under consideration. The prison has received funds outside the education contract to run a Pathfinder project to introduce new basic skills qualifications. In addition, a new vocational training workshop is under construction, and due to open in mid 2002.
