Mentoring Prison Officer (North)

The deadline for this vacancy has passed.

Mentoring Prison Officers (MPOs) might be the single most important aspect of the Unlocked programme. You’ll typically work with 15-20 prison officers in two prisons, spending two days a week in each establishment. You will support them from day one of their training until the end of their two years, coaching them on everything from prison procedures to career opportunities.

Our Mentoring Prison Officers (MPOs) run training, group supervisions and 1-to-1 mentoring sessions with the participants, developing them into exceptional prison officers. You’ll record and monitor their progress, working with managers and governors in the prisons to get a full picture of your graduates’ performance. Other MPOs and your line manager will support your decision making and planning.

We prioritise your professional development. One day a week is spent with your line managers receiving training which includes working towards a coaching qualification.

You must be a current HMPPS employee with permission from the governing governor (or equivalent) to go on secondment. Unlocked can support with this process. Please get in touch if you have any concerns or questions.
