HMYOI Aylesbury is a prison housing young prisoners aged 18-21, all serving long sentences. The Education Department works closely with their prison colleagues to deliver medium to long courses that help prepare learners for employment upon release. Courses include: English and Maths Functional Skills (Entry 2 to Level 2), ICT, Cookery, Radio and Media, Painting & Decorating, Horticulture, Motor and Motor Cycle Mechanics, Bricklaying, mentoring and Barbering.
In the department they believe the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge will help their learners to end their offending behaviour. They engage the hardest to reach learners and encourage them to take pride in their own education and self-development. As a department, they endeavour to inspire learners to achieve and for some, attain their first significant qualifications. If you believe that you can inspire and reach challenging young prisoners, then they would like to hear from you!
