Additional information: Education/Training is one of the key approaches to reducing youth offending, in the UK and internationally. The evidence base for adopting this approach is overwhelmingly based on cross-sectional and longitudinal studies. This chapter reports on the findings of a quasi-experimental study of the effects of education/ training on the literacy and numeracy of young offenders in custody and in the community. Implementation of education/training programmes in this population is complex and for this reason, both qualitative and quantitaive data were collected from four sites from a sample of 147 young people. This work is part of a programme of research to provide an evidence base for education/training in a group of young people with high rates of recidivism and low attainment in literacy and numeracy.
