Job description:

This is an exciting opportunity for a talented and passionate programme writer, developer and facilitator to work with us to design, pilot and evaluate 3 short group-work programmes supporting men in the criminal justice system to fulfil their potential and break the cycle of reoffending.

 

Adopting a strength-based approach rooted in desistance theory, and deploying techniques to suit a range of learning styles, the programmes will seek to support participants towards meaningful, cognitive change.

 

The successful candidate will work with our Head of Custodial Services, also a trained programme facilitator, to define the scope of each programme, however our three proposed areas of focus are:

  1. Emotional management and wellbeing
  2. Building self-esteem and resilience
  3. Motivation and employability

 

The Programme Development Manager will lead on the writing, piloting and evaluating the 3 programmes, with support from the Head of Custodial Services and co-facilitators from within our criminal justice teams.

 

Each programme will be drafted and piloted at least twice, once in a custodial and once in a community setting, before being edited based on service user and facilitator feedback. Each programme will be evaluated utilising relevant academic scales and analysis of data assessing impact on a range of outcomes, including wellbeing, resilience and employability.

 

By the end of the 6-month pilot period, it is intended that each programme has professional teacher and learner materials, including lesson plans and course workbooks, and that each programme has the beginnings of an evidence base from the pilot evaluations.

 

The Role:

Reporting to the Head of Custodial Services, the Programme Development Manager’s responsibilities will include:

  1. Co-facilitating service user forums in prison to inform our approach
  2. Working with the Head of Custodial Services and Director of CJS to design each programme’s key aims, target groups, structure and evaluation strategy
  3. Working with the Head of Custodial Services and Director of CJS to develop a piloting and evaluation timetable with key milestones
  4. Developing and/or adapting course materials and lesson plans that cater for a range of learning styles and working with a designer to produce pilot materials
  5. Supported by our local CJS teams, liaising with the relevant senior managers in prison and probation settings to secure delivery space, appropriate referral pathways and effective promotion campaign
  6. Co-facilitating pilot courses in custodial or community settings alongside current CJS staff
  7. Reviewing feedback from service users and facilitators, alongside evaluation findings
  8. Editing course content, including teacher and learner materials, based on feedback and evaluation
  9. Working with a designer to produce final course materials, ready for ongoing delivery
  10. Contributing to marketing materials to support future commissioning

 

The role will be based in our Head Office in Islington, with regular travel to our prisons and probation offices in London. Some home-working can be accommodated for the programme writing elements, if required.

 

Strong experience of developing and facilitating group work programmes, preferably in criminal justice settings, will be vital to this role. Excellent communication skills and being able to develop strong working relationships will also be crucial. Some understanding of prisons and/or probation services is preferable.

 

You will have a passion for working with people with experience of the criminal justice system and/or with other marginalised groups, and a belief that everyone can turn their life around regardless of past or present circumstances. You will have an ability to build rapport, motivate and inspire, and a keen eye for detail.

Based in 4 London prisons and CRC (probation) offices in every Borough, we provide bespoke support with a wide range of issues, including accommodation, employment, mental health and substance misuse.
