In particular, the following issues are highlighted: (1) the overall need for change; (2) implementation of centrally decided policy; (3) change associated with the introduction of new Work Attendance Patterns and the issue of high staff absenteeism; (4) estate strategy and the role of private sector provision; and (5) policy to encourage more ''prisoner development''. It has been used as the basis for the ''live case study'' approach, although it can also be used as a stand-alone case.
