Are you looking to join an outstanding Educational Department? Could your teaching really help to transform lives? If so, why not come along to the Offender Education Careers Event being hosted at HMP Hewell this January.
On the 25th January, Milton Keynes College are holding a Careers Event at HMP Hewell to recruit outstanding teachers from within the Worcestershire and Warwickshire regions, to join their innovative educational departments at HMP Hewell and HMP Long Lartin. The Careers Event offers a unique opportunity for attendees to take a department tour at HMP Hewell and its facilities, speak with the on-site management team, hear first-hand experiences of some of the learners and find out more about the current vacancies.
Milton Keynes College currently has a wide range of exciting sessional teaching opportunities in the following subject areas at both establishments:
About HMP Hewell
HMP Hewell is a category B/C/D local split between two sites within open countryside and landscaped gardens. The prison has a maximum capacity of 1250 males over 21 years of age. As part of Milton Keynes College’s expansion in Offender Learning, they are seeking to recruit innovative, creative teachers. The College delivers a broad curriculum encompassing vocational training, functional skills, employability and personal and social development skills. The Education provision is delivered in purpose-built Education Departments and vocational workshops across the two sites.
About HMP Long Lartin
HMP Long Lartin is a High Security dispersal prison situated a short distance from the town of Evesham. It houses both Category A and B prisoners including category A remand prisoners.
Education at Long Lartin is delivered by a small friendly team headed by Tim Forman. Courses are delivered on a full or part time basis both within the Education building or within the prison workshops. The Education provision is planned for approximately 80 learners per morning and afternoon with both sessions being about 3 hours in length. As a tutor, you can expect to have between 8 and 10 learners in your group dependent on the level of the learner.
The Education Department offers a varied curriculum, and due to the long sentences of the prisoners, there are opportunities for you as a tutor to follow the progress of your learner from entry level to level 2 and in some instances through to Open University degree courses. This is something that does not happen often in other establishments.
The team and more importantly the learners enjoyed excellent success rates last year and are on course to excel again this year.
