Cover Tutor in Skills for Life (HMP Ford)
Have you ever considered working with offenders? Do you want to work in an environment where you can really make a difference?
We are seeking to appoint flexible hourly paid Cover Tutors (Maths or English) to our existing bank of staff to provide sickness and holiday cover all year round at HMP Ford.
HMP Ford is an open prison (low risk) situated near Arundel in rural West Sussex. College staff, working in partnership with prison colleagues, create a cohesive learning journey underpinned by Functional English and Maths for adults in custody. Maths and English Functional Skills courses are delivered as discreet provision in stand-alone classes, outreach or embedded in vocational/training workshops, from Entry to Level 2. In its last three inspections, OFSTED repeatedly graded Ford`s education provision as Good, with areas Outstanding.
Novus Group is a large scale social enterprise which delivers learning and skills in over 100 sites within Her Majesty`s Prisons, private sector prisons, Approved Premises and the community. Working closely with stakeholders, we provide locally determined, high quality provision which meets the needs and interests of learners.
Learners develop skills which will help them to find and sustain employment on release. This raises the aspirations of offenders, which effectively supports their progression to employment and responds to the needs of employers. This, in turn, makes a positive contribution to reducing the risk of re-offending.
Reporting to the OLASS (Education) Manager the purpose of this role (but not limited to) is as follows:
- Develop lesson plans based around best practice and quality targets
- Actively contribute to learner`s development
