Overview

Are you ready for your next challenge in education? Do you have a passion for education with plenty of enthusiasm to develop and inspire those with difficult behavior? If you’ve answered “yes” to these questions then a new and exciting opportunity awaits..

We work with one of the largest providers of Offender Learning Provisions in England to find exceptional trainers, tutors and support workers that have the drive, patience and compassion to work with those looking for a chance to turn their lives around and gain the skills they need to build a better future for themselves.

Each prison has its own purpose built OFSTED registered education department, boasting with both fully equipped classrooms for academic subjects and custom assembled workshops for vocational courses.

We currently have a requirement at HMP Stocken for an ongoing full time Additional Learning Support Practitioner who is able to encourage and support the learners throughout their academic and vocational studies. You will be working closely under supervision of the teaching staff, supporting them in the classroom or operating on a one-to-one basis assisting and mentoring learners who may have learning difficulties.

Hours of work – Monday to Thursday 8:00am until 5:00pm and Friday 8:00am until 12 noon

Suitable candidates will meet the following criteria:
*Have a good basic general education including GCSE (or equivalent) Maths and English at Grade C.
*Hold an NVQ2/NVQ3 Teaching Assistant qualification.
*Have experience of working in a learning environment.
*Have well-developed interpersonal skills in relating to prison staff and in working with students who may have little experience of education and training.
*Be computer literate and have the ability to work as part of a team and on their own initiative.
*Have good organisational skills and be able to meet deadlines.

In return we can offer you the following:
*£9.00 per hour (plus statutory holiday pay)
*Flexibility to take holidays throughout the year without the usual term time restriction
*Down time within the prison for planning (no marking is completed at home)
*Education runs all year and not termly so there is increased earning potential for sessional and on-going staff
*Opportunities for continuing professional development (CPD)
*Small manageable class sizes on average of between 7 and 12 learners
*Education for learners is a privilege; those who take it for granted lose the right

If successful, you will need to go through Prison Security Clearance, this procedure takes approximately 2 – 4 weeks. You will also be required to have a fully enhanced DBS.
