You will be required to provide and promote outstanding Library and Learning Resource Centre services and facilities that are 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 develop and promote the Learning Resource Centre and its services to maximise access and usage for learning, leisure, well-being, resettlement and employment progression.
