Job Description - EXPIRED

An exciting role training current offenders in Level1 Painting and Decorating, has arisen on a full time basis, contracted for 3months with the possibility of a permanent role on a £27k-£30k salary, to start ASAP.

We are recruiting for this position on behalf of an inspirational training charity and social enterprise group who have an enormous impact on the lives of current and ex- offenders across the City of London.

This role will be based within Brixton Prison Training Centre training residents in NVQ Level1 Painting and Decorating to help them as part of their rehabilitation programme, as well as out in community based projects.

The main responsibilities of the Painting and Decorating Tutor will be to:
Take prisoners through their NVQ Level1 Painting and Decorating qualification
To provide guidance in terms of professional conduct whilst on site and other advice relating to the world of work such as budgeting and social skills ready for their release.
Manage budgets and stock to ensure that the centre is fully equipped and on target to meet deadlines.
To be motivational and lead by example whilst still being able to enforce behaviour management when required.

Based in East London, for over 3years the charity has worked with participants in custody and on release across London to help them obtain professional qualifications in painting and decorating at NVQ Level 1 and 2. Their core objectives are to train and equip ex-offenders with skills, professional qualifications as well as help them gain an understanding of how to manage self-employment, benefits and tax so that they can move into the workplace with confidence and complete the transition from custody into paid employment. To date over 140 people have been through their training course and have achieved a re-offending rate of less than 12% against the national average of 60%.

The successful Painting and Decorating tutor will:
Have a PTTLS or DTTLs qualification (or other training qualification/professional experience)
