Half-day formal education classes for general and practical subjects are provided for young persons in custody. These aim at helping the youngsters re-integrate into society on their discharge by enhancing their basic academic standards and restoring their self-esteem and confidence through our programmes. Every effort is made to assist the adult persons in custody in their voluntary self studies. We believe that, through education, positive attitude and values of persons in custody can be nurtured.
Formal education classes conducted by qualified teachers are run in young offender institutions. In response to the social needs, accredited public examinations set clear targets for the inmates. We encourage inmates to study for external examinations such as the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination, LCCI International Qualifications, City & Guilds International Examinations and Cambridge English Examinations.
We encourage adult persons in custody to participate in self-studying courses or distance learning programmes to make the optimal use of the resources and expertise from external accredited educational organisations. Increasing numbers of inmates have been enrolled in tertiary education in recent years.
