This handbook is intended to provide a framework with which prison training academies can design leadership and management training programmes. Given the complexity of prison leadership and management and the broad range of skills required of those tasked with this critical responsibility, effective training is essential.
The handbook provides a suggested roadmap for the design and provision of such training and highlights the critical elements required to achieve success. It does not propose a ready-made solution for leadership and management training. Its intention is rather to stimulate thinking about common issues and to aid in the design of training suitable for the individual country’s environment
