Overview

Re-offending currently costs the economy between £9.5 and £13 billion a year on average. With this in mind and prison education being at the heart of the current reforms, there has never been a better time to think about become an Offender Learning Lecturer.

Statistics show that education and training drastically reduces an individual’s likelihood of re-offending on release. Not only does upskilling provide more opportunities to gain employment but it increases self-esteem and self-worth.

Are you supportive, understanding and inspirational? If so then you could educate offenders and play a part in the reduction of re-offending!

Amidst the shakeup of the prison system under the recommendations set out by Dame Sally Coates, a number of prison establishments are looking to take a new innovative approach to teaching. One such prison is HMP Send in Surrey; a female estate that houses around 280 women prisoners serving sentences of anywhere between 6 months to life (though 81% off women in England serving a prison sentence have been convicted of non-violent crimes). They are looking for a Functional Skills team leader who can inject some passion and creativity back into learning and inspire others to follow.

These women have already been judged by the law and are serving their punishment. Could you be non-judgmental and help those looking for a second chance to achieve their goals and better themselves ready for a new start? If so then we would love to hear from you.

In return we can offer you the following:

- A salary of up to £32,324 (subject to qualifications and experience)
- 36 days holiday
- Excellent pension scheme
- Flexibility to take holidays throughout the year without the usual term time restrictions
- Down time within the prison for planning (no marking is completed at home)
- Opportunities for continuing professional development (CPD)
- Small manageable class sizes on average of between 7 and 15 learners
- Education for learners is a privilege; those who take it for granted lose the right
