Novus research with Manchester Metropolitan University has identified 18 studies of prison education between 1995 and 2014, all of which have found that education in prisons had a positive impact on reducing the re-offending rates.
Five of these studies examined the effect of education on employment, and these ultimately determined that those who engaged in prison education are 24 per cent more likely to successfully secure employment than those who have not.
Those who teach offenders have the opportunity to transform lives, by helping learners to gain career-relevant qualifications and secure employment upon release. To that end, Novus is committed to further strengthening its dedicated team of 3,000 colleagues, who operate in custody, Approved Premises and the community.
The organisation is holding an Offender Learning Careers Event in London at the start of next month and is looking to recruit exceptional and inspirational teachers and trainers for its Education departments in a number of prisons across Greater London. The event takes place at 1 Drummond Gate, Pimlico, on 1st June, and runs from 10am to 6pm.
Novus colleagues from London establishments will be on hand to answer questions about specific sites, current vacancies or working within the sector.
