Data on the number and proportion of Gypsies and Travellers that have undertaken vocational training courses whilst in English prisons is not held by the Ministry of Justice.
There is a wide range of vocational training available to prisoners. The prison governor is responsible for commissioning education and training based on the needs of learners in the prison establishment and the skills in demand by employers in the areas to which prisoners will be released.
