Ministers hope better basic skills will reduce prisoners’ re-offending rates
Prisoners are to be given ‘military style’ maths and English lessons to boost their chances of finding work once they are released.
The courses will consist of 54 hours of lessons over two weeks with more help if needed.
The classes will begin in six jails as part of a drive to cut re-offending.
Skills Minister John Hayes said: “We are determined to make prisons places where people learn skills to build lives beyond crime.”
The new courses are to be based on a successful programme which gives new military recruits intensive maths and literacy courses relevant to their day-to-day work.
