Do you believe offenders deserve a second chance? Do you have a passion for teaching with plenty of drive to inspire?

Protocol works with one of the largest Offender Learning providers in England to find exceptional trainers, tutors and lecturers that have the determination, patience and compassion to work with those looking for a chance to turn their lives around and gain the skills they need to build a better future for themselves. 

Each prison has its own purpose built OFSTED registered education department, boasting with both fully equipped classrooms for academic subjects and custom assembled workshops for vocational courses. All subjects delivered are fully accredited with a view to the learners gaining recognised qualifications. 

We are currently recruiting for a Carpentry Lecturer on behalf of HMP Spring Hill (category D open prison). This is a full time, temporary position. This role can lead to a permanent position after 13 weeks.

The successful candidate will deliver level 1 & 2 carpentry qualifications to diverse groups of learners. This will then enable them to gain employment upon release. You will also assist in developing a strong vocational programme that meets the learners and the prisons needs.

To be suitable for this role, candidates must meet the following criteria; 

  • Previous training experience
  • A teaching qualification is desirable
  • Have good organisational and planning skills.
  • Plenty of enthusiasm and the ability to motivate learners.
  • Willingness to provide outstanding support for learners
  • Extensive knowledge of your subject area.
  • Be flexible and self-motivated with a dedication to learner achievement and quality.

Please note – you will be required to undertake prison security clearance before commencement of the role. This is completed as part of the recruitment process for successful candidates at no cost to yourself.
