From February 2020 arrangements for Ofsted inspection of education, skills and work in prisons and young offender institutions are:

  • We usually inspect as part of a His Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP) inspection and our findings are published in the ‘Purposeful activity’ section of the report on the HMIP website.
  • We may carry out an inspection without HMIP and our findings are published on this website.

 From January 2012 to February 2020 we only inspected with HMIP.
