HMP Lowdham Grange is a Category B establishment for adult males, with safety and security at the heart of it. As our English Teacher you’ll be part of an onsite team delivering education to residents that increases employability, reduces the likelihood of reoffending and prepares prisoners for a successful return to the community.

 

Working with the Head of Learning and Skills you’ll develop, administer and deliver all aspects of your specialist subject for varying levels and in line with the core curriculum and awarding body specification(s).

We focus on fine-tuning each aspect of our work to enable us to develop the whole prison culture to ensure the prison is a great place to work and a better environment for our staff and those in our care.

You will need to hold, as a minimum, Level 3 Award in Education in Training (QCF) or Level 3 – subject specialism, with recent experience of teaching English.

 

As with any teaching job you’ll need strong interpersonal, oral and written communication skills but you’ll also need to be comfortable with the security aspects the role requires – such as rub down searching of prisoners.
