We are hiring! We are looking for a Classroom Facilitator to join our team (HMP Wandsworth)
Is this you?
We are looking for a motivated, resilient individual to join our team. You will be passionate about tech and supporting vulnerable groups into employment. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing team and make a positive impact on the lives of people in custody.
Are you able to teach tech skills to provide prisoners with access to transformative opportunities and sustainable careers?
Do you feel compelled to work on programmes and services that combat recidivism?
At Code4000, our mission is to reduce reoffending by teaching software development skills in prisons, and to find them work on release.
We are a young organisation with big ambitions to grow and positively impact the lives of people in prison over the coming years. This is a unique opportunity to be part of an innovative project that looks to empower people in custody through teaching tech skills.
We are the first programme in the UK and Europe to teach computer coding to prisoners and we take our inspiration from The Last Mile, an established prison coding programme that started in San Quentin in the US, but now also runs in several prisons throughout the USA.
We currently operate in HMP Humber and HMP Holme House in the North-East and are looking to recruit a full-time Classroom Facilitator to work at HMP Wandsworth in south-west London where this role will be based. This project will be the first of its kind in the Capital.
Who we are looking for
Candidates should have experience in supporting vulnerable groups or ex-offenders to improve employability skills, motivation and resilience. They should also have a knowledge of computer coding and it’s uses, in particular full-stack development (e.g. Node.js, Ruby on Rails, or similar), and ideally have a teaching qualification. A degree, or other qualification, in Computer Science would be desirable. The role might suit a Computer Science graduate looking to move into teaching, a hobbyist programmer already working in education or prisons, or a professional developer looking for a career change.
