As Government ministers are looking to increase the number of education hours of the young offenders undertake on a weekly basis. Werrington Young Offenders' Institution in order to support this initiative have set up a recruitment drive to hire right candidates for the right jobs but not at the cost of the existing ones
Here are the 5 Changes incorporated in the Jail Education system :
- The new module comprises of individual pathways where one-to-one session will be held with them to determine their own expectations, their previous education and also their goals and aspirations.
- The Key Stage 4 core subjects, like English, Maths and Computing are embedded into each pathway, but the jail authorities can tailor them to fit the boys' needs. They can also do art, music and IT.
- The educational hours will be increased and split into morning and evening sections along with 3 hours of compulsory physical education.
- Learning is the major concern for the new Educational module. The jail authorities would like to make provisions to find out what these young boys like doing and help them to develop skills, both practical and for employ-ability.
- According to the statements given by the Werrington Young Offenders' Institution , " "We can also offer the boys temporary licenses, which means if they display an aptitude for something like brickwork or painting, we can get a work placement for them in the community."One success story we've had was one boy who went out on a temporary license work placement is now completing an apprenticeship outside."
