About HMP Long Lartin
HMP Long Lartin is a Category A High Security dispersal prison and is part of the Long Term and High Security directorate housing some of the most serious offenders in the prison system that are drawn from all areas of the UK and includes some Foreign Nationals. These prisoners are in the early stages of their sentence and are likely to progress into other establishments prior to release. The majority of the curriculum is therefore focused on helping prisoners to develop English, maths, and personal skills to enable them to benefit from continued training, education and work whilst still in custody.
The education team in HMP Long Lartin are highly motivated and we take pride in our learner’s success. We work hard to support learners, encourage engagement from reluctant prisoners and aim to offer potential employment opportunities through relevant and up-to-date qualifications. We are a flexible and adaptable team who work in partnership with our prison colleagues to ensure the journey through education is as safe and enjoyable as possible. The dedication of the education team in achieving these ambitions, as well as the expectation of high standards and the drive for continued improvement has been recently rewarded with a Grade 2 by Ofsted.

- Hold a relevant qualification (level 3 or above).
- Hold a recognised teaching qualification (DTLLS, PGCE, Cert Ed) or willing to work towards
- Hold relevant assessor/verifier awards.
- Have teaching/training or vocational experience in Hospitality and relevant up-to-date knowledge.
- Have a proven record of accomplishment, managing and supporting diverse groups of learners through nationally accredited programmes.
- Have experience of identifying, developing and sharing innovative and creative teaching resources
- Have experience of working with students who may have little experience of education and training (desirable).
- Have knowledge of current curriculum and accreditation developments within Further Education and specific subject area(s).
- Have the ability to teach creatively, adapting to the needs of a variety of learners and willing to explore new teaching and learning strategies.
