More needs to be done to prepare Jersey prisoners for life when they are released.

An inspection report has found La Moye is 'failing' when it comes to providing the right education, skills and work to inmates.

It says this could reduce reoffending rates, as prisoners would be more prepared for 'employment, training or education on release'.

Overall the prison was assessed as 'good' for safety and respect.

We are confident that, under the direction of the governor, the competent and committed learning and skills team will take on board our criticisms of the current provision and use their experience and knowledge to drive the improvements needed.
