Developments in Prison Service Education and Training. Coombe Lodge Report. Volume 22, Number 1.
Benson, Ian; And Others
Coombe Lodge Reports, v22 n1 1990
Ten papers are provided on the prison education service in the United Kingdom. "Developments in Prison Service Management" (Ian Benson) describes changes in the past 5 years. "Prison Libraries" (Peter Blunt) describes the background to prison libraries and provides information on the present position. Current approaches to vocational education and training are addressed in "Prison Service Vocational Training in the 1990s" (Christine Braddock). "The Management of Regimes" (Ian Dunbar) contains the message that the prison service must have a clear vision of the need to care for, help, and influence prisoners and must translate that vision into concrete language which provides a practical tool for management purposes. "The Role and Function of the Head of Inmate Activities: A Practitioner's Approach" (Alison Gomme) describes the Fresh Start model. "Conditions of Service for Staff in Further Education" (David Marston) considers that 1-2% of the further education work force are correctional educators. "Officer-Led Pre-Release Training" (Stephen Pryor) explains the goals of helping inmates cope with imprisonment and return successfully to the community. "Implications and Opportunities of the Education Reform Act for Prison Education" are considered by Paul Ripley. "The Management of Stress" (Anna Stiling) focuses on a concern of corrections officers. The final paper examines the "Development of National Vocational Qualifications in the Prison Service" (Neil Tattersall). (YLB)
