Improving The Literacy & Numeracy Of Young People In Custody
Young people in the youth justice system tend to have lower than average attainment in literacy and numeracy. This makes it more difficult for them to find consistent employment and heightens the chances of offending. This is the final report from the National Research & Development Centre which presents findings from the research project 'Improving the literacy and numeracy of young offenders and disaffected young people', looking at classroom observations and experimental interventions. The aims were to observe the kind of provision on offer and the impact of either increasing discrete literacy and numeracy provision or contextualising provision.
