Milton Keynes College delivers Offender Learning and Skills provision in 28 prisons across the Midlands and in the South of England, working with MTC Novo to deliver the in-custody Community Rehabilitation Services in the Thames Valley and library services in custody.
During this period, the College has worked with parnters in the prison service to develop individualised programmes of learning that lead to a range of positive outcomes. To support these outcomes, they have focussed on particular aspects of their service, including increased use of Additional Offender Learning Support to help learners achieve who may otherwise be disadvantaged, and the development and expansion of their Employment Academy model, developed in partnership with employers, to deliver training that meets these employers’ needs and leads to real jobs on release.
Offender Learning and skills is provided across A – D category, High Security, Young Offenders, the female estate and open prisons in both public sector and private sector prisons. The College is committed to working in partnership with HM Prison and Probation Services (HMPPS) to ensure a clear synergy between all elements of the regime to maximise outcomes and value for money.
Offender Education jobs with Milton Keynes College offer a number of fantastic benefits, including a generous holiday allowance, excellent pension scheme, access to continuing professional and personal development schemes, childcare discounts and more.
Milton Keynes College is a values led organisation. They firmly believe in integrity, excellence, inspiring others, respect, and innovation. The College vision for their Offender Learning provision is:
- To be at the heart of the prison service through a ‘one prison’ approach
- Offender learning to be a transformational process enabling successful resettlement on release
- To enable prisoners to be inspired to achieve and progress
- To provide a range of clear and accessible learner pathways across the prison and through the gate.
