Do you like working in a challenging but rewarding environment where each day is different and time flies?

Are you an enthusiastic and talented teacher/trainer who is looking to transform lives through learning?

Have you ever thought of a career in offender learning?

Milton Keynes College Offender Learning Team in the East Midlands are seeking experienced Lecturers/Teachers to deliver a variety of accredited qualifications to a diverse group of learners within prisons in the East Midlands, helping to build their confidence, develop their skills and achieve within a college environment.

We provide Education to 7 prisons in the East Midlands and currently would be very interested to hear from candidates who can feasibly travel to HMP Gartree, HMP Stocken, HMP Leicester, HMP Nottingham, HMP Ranby, HMP Sudbury or HMP Whatton to work flexible sessions. 

Vacancies and sessional requirements can change frequently so cover needs could arise at other prisons in the region and as a sessional worker you would have the opportunity to work at multiple sites if that suited. You could also cover across multiple courses if you hold qualifications or expertise in more than one area – For example: English and Maths. A teaching qualification is desirable but not an essential requirement.

Milton Keynes College are currently looking for individuals with the below skill sets across a varied curriculum. On the whole, delivery is up to Level 2, however there is some Level 3 and GCSE provision as well as access to Higher Education and Open University courses at some sites. 


This is an exciting time for prison education and a great opportunity to experience prison teaching as a variable hours/sessional tutor with potential to be covering part or full time hours. 

Prison education runs all year round, all day Monday-Thursday and generally until lunchtime on a Friday. Delivery hours can range from 4.5-6.5 per day split across two long lessons, within an overall 08:00-17:00 day (please note these times do vary slightly from site to site). 

This is an ideal opportunity for a dedicated trainer / lecturer / teacher to deliver high learner success, through effective teaching and delivery. This vacancy would suit a highly motivated teacher, with a can do approach to education. The ideal candidate will be a passionate and creative lecturer, who can thrive upon working within a challenging yet rewarding environment, who can offer skills & knowledge to our learners and guide them throughout their courses. You will be a team player with excellent communication skills both written and verbal. Experience embedding Maths, English, E&D and Employability is essential, in order to successfully deliver the curriculum.
