HMP Wakefield have had their initial readiness assessment visit on the 26th June, following this they are required to provide a local training plan which will outline a timeframe for them to complete local training of staff.

The readiness assessment and training plan will require sign-off by their Prison Group Director and the Project Sponsor to ensure it is realistic and achievable. Once sign-off is provided training will commence.
