§ Mr. Clappison
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment whether teachers employed to teach in(a) institutions for young people maintained by social sciences departments and (b) prison institutions for young offenders are eligible for performance-related pay. 
§ Ms Estelle Morris
Teachers employed to teach in institutions for young people maintained by social services departments and in prison institutions for young offenders are not, as of right, subject to the terms of the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document and are not eligible to apply for the threshold in the current round of the assessment process. In response to representations received from institutions wishing to mirror the threshold arrangements, we are actively considering how to open up threshold training and the external assessment process to such institutions once the immediate pressures of the current application round have reduced.
