Could you change lives for good?

11 February 2015

Prospects, the education, employment and training company, is putting education at the heart of detention at Feltham Young Offenders Institution and we’re looking for qualified teaching staff, tutors, trainers, assessors and learning support assistants to help bring the vision to life.

The Government has set out its vision to put more emphasis on education in youth custody to equip young offenders with qualifications and skills to break the cycle of reoffending when they leave detention. To help place more emphasis on education, young people in custody will spend an increased number of hours in education each week.

Prospects, the education, employment and training company, has been selected to provide education for all young people within Feltham Young Offenders Institution (YOI) for the next five years.

If you have the skills to teach, experience of an education environment and the desire to raise aspirations, come along to our recruitment day to hear from Victoria Blakeman, Prospects Director of Criminal Justice and to speak directly to experienced staff that will provide you with a true insight of working in a secure environment.

The recruitment day takes place on Tuesday 17 February between 10am – 3pm at Central Hall Westminster, Storey’s Gate, London, SW1H 9NH.

Please bring along a copy of your CV to register with us on the day. For all queries please contact Nina Hardy, Recruitment Services Director on:0208 315 1234 or e-mail

Prospects already plays a role in helping to reduce reoffending by providing the National Careers Service In Custody to offenders in all prisons in London, the South West, West Midlands and Yorkshire and the Humber. Prospects increase opportunities for offenders, helping them to access support and tackle their barriers to employment in the resettlement phase of the sentence and through the gate as they return to the community.
