Do you want to help transform life opportunities? Have you ever considered the unique challenge of Prison Education? Teaching in prisons is an incredibly rewarding challenge with the benefits of mainstream education.

Weston College is the regional provider for the Prison Education Framework (PEF) delivery across the South East and South West of England and is now seeking to recruit a highly motivated Learning Facilitator at HMP Portland.

The successful applicant will be required to promote and support engagement with learning that is flexible and responsive to the needs of all learners and the wider prison community. You will work collaboratively with curriculum and prison staff as well as partner agencies to promote, facilitate and support access to learning that maximises engagement and progression including the use of the Virtual Campus for learning, resettlement and employment. The range of activities will vary according to the individual prison and the changing population priorities.

This is an exciting time to join Weston College. The College is Ofsted ‘Outstanding’, its Higher Education provision is graded ‘Gold’ by TEF, and Weston College has recently won the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education, one of only two Further Education colleges in the country to be awarded this prestigious honour. Furthermore, the College is an Investors in People ‘Champion’ and has been awarded ‘Gold’ by Investors in People, which demonstrates our commitment to invest in our staff to improve performance.

Weston College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people, and vulnerable adults, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to complete an enhanced DBS and obtain the appropriate prison clearance before starting the role.
