AYM has responded to Ofsted’s consultation on proposed changes to joint inspections of secure training centres.

While recognising the need for changes, and welcoming most of them, we are concerned about the proposal to drop ‘safety of young people’ and ‘resettlement of young people’ as judgement criteria. Both are critical to safeguarding and reducing offending, and need to be maintained. We agree with Ofsted proposals to step up arrangements following a judgement of inadequate, and the ‘point-in-time’ surveys of children and young people in secure training centres.

The full response is available on request via our website at http://aym.org.uk/about-us/contact-us/​
