At PeoplePlus Justice we’re committed to tackling the underlying causes of offending, and to transforming the lives of offenders. To achieve this, we deliver programmes of support that help those in prison or serving a sentence in the community. Our programmes deal with the root causes of offender behaviour, helping people to live improved lives and make a positive contribution to society.
About the role.
We are looking to recruit Cover Tutors that can do more than just support with the delivery of qualifications but can help engage and inspire students that have had little or no prior education. They work with our Education Managers, Team Leaders and other PeoplePlus staff to familiarise themselves with the curriculum and individual schemes of work. They provide supply cover across a range of Vocational areas. This will involve assessing the learning and skills needs of individual offenders with a view to improving their employability skills along with contributing to the review of individual offender’s progress in meeting their learning and skills needs throughout their sentence.
