The Education Department is small and friendly and designed to feel like a College rather than a prison. Staff pride themselves in empowering learners to achieve their full potential and are able to attain the qualifications, and learn the skills necessary, to successfully resettle back into the community on release and secure employment. We recognise that many of the learners in our care have usually not had the best start in life and have not engaged with education in the past. We aim to make the lessons interesting, relevant, enjoyable and worthwhile to our learners in order to inspire them to achieve.

  • Hold a vocational qualification (level 3 or above) engineering or manufacturing.
  • Hold a recognised teaching qualification (DTLLS, PGCE, Cert Ed).
  • Hold relevant assessor/verifier awards.
  • Have teaching/training or vocational experience in a relevant discipline/subject area and relevant up-to-date knowledge.
  • Have a proven track record of managing and supporting diverse groups of learners through nationally accredited programmes.
  • Have experience of identifying, developing and sharing innovative and creative teaching resources
  • Have experience of working with students who may have little experience of education and training (desirable).
  • Have knowledge of current curriculum and accreditation developments within Further Education and specific subject area(s).
  • Have the ability to teach creatively, adapting to the needs of a variety of learners and willing to explore new teaching and learning strategies.
  • Have good IT skills and willing to develop further.
  • Show accuracy and precision in written presentation.
  • The requirement of this role is to work across the whole prison estate, on all wings where education is delivered.
