Job Description

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) across the South West and South East of England and is now seeking to recruit an outstanding and highly motivated Generalist Lecturer at HMP Exeter.

Are you looking for a career where you can change lives? Are you passionate about helping others to learn and looking for a new challenge? In this role you will have an outstanding opportunity to positively enhance learners’ lives through teaching at HMP Exeter. You will be an inspiring and resilient practitioner with a desire to make a difference. As a Generalist Lecturer, you will deliver English and Maths courses, and other subjects as directed by the Curriculum Manager.

When you join the team at Weston College, you will be joining a multi-award winning organisation which is one of the fasted growing colleges in the UK.

As an employee of Weston College you will have access to a huge range of benefits and support, including but not limited to:

  • Wellbeing @ Weston hub, providing well-being support for all;
  • A staff welfare officer;
  • Confidential Employee Assistance Programme (available 24/7, 365 days a year);
  • Access to Mental Health First Aiders, and the opportunity to complete this training yourself;
  • Training and development opportunities;
  • Regular staff conferences, with guest speakers;
  • Staff social events;
  • Great progression opportunities;
  • Generous pension schemes.

Although we are an education provider, you don’t necessarily need experience within education to apply for a role with us, if you have relevant and transferable skills, we would welcome your application.

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