Would you like to work in an establishment where no two days are the same and where you can truly make a difference? Would you prefer small class sizes of 6-10, no endless hours of home marking and less restrictions on holiday dates?
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.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, there is currently no face to face delivery of education in the prisons. However, we are still keen to speak to candidates regarding this role to start once prison education services resume.
About the role.
We are looking to recruit Tutors that can do more than just deliver a qualification but can engage and inspire students that have had little or no prior education. We need a Tutor that believes people are capable of change and deserve a second chance in life. Our Tutors deliver innovative, engaging and motivational learning sessions to small groups of Prison based learners. Our Tutors ensure that they work with our learners to develop their skills, knowledge and behaviours while supporting them with their long-term goals and aspirations. They ensure that the appropriate training plans are in place and that the advice and guidance is given when required while ensuring they deliver the highest level of quality courses that engage with the learners and help them to reach their potential. Our Tutors take ownership of our delivery from entry level 3 up to and including level 2.
This is a part time position for 18.75 hours per week.
