    "First Aid" "Health & Safety" Tutor Teacher Lecturer Assessor

Have you ever considered teaching – in a prison?

If you would like a unique and challenging teaching role, where you can genuinely make a difference, enhance the prospects of your learners, and ultimately change people’s lives for the better – then this could be the opportunity for you.

Like any educational setting, Prisons come with their challenges. In this environment, learners are locked up for large periods of the day, away from their families and for some, their children. Most are at rock bottom, having to live with the regret of what they have done – education gives them a focus. And hope.

Education provides prisoners with an opportunity to upskill, increasing their future employment prospects which directly reduces the likelihood of reoffending. Many prisoners will arrive without having basic Maths or English skills. Prison Education ensures all learners are put through Functional Skills Maths & English, which then puts them on the pathway to vocational learning courses, such as Carpentry, Bricklaying, Plumbing, Plastering & Tiling, Motor Mechanics, Catering and Horticulture.

Prisons have a dedicated education department, with classrooms and fully functioning workshop’s, where teaching and learning can take place. You will be fully supported by an experienced education department. Training and development are available.

This position is for a part-time Generalist Tutor to work at a Category D Adult Male Open-Prison. The role will involve teaching Health & Safety and First Aid courses, to classes of up to 10 learners. Lessons run for 2.5 hours, allowing for more contact time with the learners.
