Specialist Production Instructor
Specialist Production Instructor – Machining / Sheet Metal / Welding & Fabrication
£23,501 - £26,138
As an Specialist Production Instructor, you’ll share your technical knowledge and pass on your skills. By doing so, you’ll be giving prisoners the means to build a promising future. It’s an experience that could be life-changing, as you’ll see prisoners excel and learn under your guidance.
At HMPPS, we tailor learning and training requirements to individual needs. This highly rewarding role is based within our specialist workshop, which gives prisoners the chance to learn about machinery and tools usage, health and safety, and even the Control of Substance Hazardous to Health (COSHH).
Here, you’ll instruct and supervise offenders to produce a range of engineered goods for the prison service. With patience, encouragement and expertise, you’ll teach them your skills, so they can gain the necessary experience and qualifications to gain employment on release.
While it’s important that prisoners learn and progress, high-quality workmanship is also expected. You’ll make sure that all goods are produced to the highest standard, in a safe, secure and productive environment.
You’ll need to be atleast 18 by the time you are employed. Ideally, you’ll have a Level 3 qualification in your field (or be working towards this), but we also welcome experts with equivalent experience. What’s important is your drive to help others learn – you’ll know your trade and be articulate enough to explain it. Your influence has the potential to last a life time, helping offenders build a career upon their release.
Join us and enjoy plenty of benefits, including a Civil Service pension, plus the chance to change lives – and society – for the better.
