Learning and skills training is promoted within all areas of Askham Grange. An individual learning programme is devised for each prisoner during the Induction process and this programme is integrated into the Resettlement Plan with specific targets to prepare each resident for release into the family and back into the community. These plans are review on a regular basis.
Training needs are met in the Education Department and across the varied work areas in the establishment. Individual potential is realised with progression through the resettlement regime and into community work and/or paid work placements that reflect the training and skills gained throughout the sentence as well as those already held. Education is provided in conjunction with Manchester College
