Full Time - 40 hours per week

Working at Oakhill Secure Training Centre (STC) is no ordinary job. If you have what it takes, it is a very rewarding career.                    

The Centre is located in Milton Keynes and we provide care and education for young people aged 13 to 18 who have been sentenced or remanded into custody. During their time with us, they attend education within our on-site facility (the Acorn Education Centre), as well as taking part in offending behaviour programmes designed to help them address the actions and attitudes that led them to custody. Our aim for all young people at Oakhill is to help them develop the skills they will need to thrive upon release.

The prime function of this key role is to assist young people within the education environment in the acquisition of skills, including literacy, numeracy and IT.



  • Assist teachers in the planning and delivery of education so that young people’s needs are met.

  • Assist and support young people to enable them to overcome barriers to learning and create positive educational opportunities.

  • Build and create mutual trust and respect with young people in order that they respond and react appropriately to information and guidance.

  • Support young people in developing individual action plans so that their needs are met.

  • Promote high standards of work and behaviour to assist in creating a learning environment that allows young people to maximise their opportunities.

  • Complete, maintain and supply documentation to ensure relevant information is accurately recorded, in line with exam board, company and contractual requirements.

  • Monitor young people’s progress advising teachers of any issues to ensure individual needs are met.

  • Monitor and analyse young people’s behaviour to avoid incidents, improve behaviour and safeguard their welfare.

  • Liase with relevant key stakeholders including schools, as required, to meet the young people’s needs.







The Ideal Candidate:

The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Level 2 or equivalent in literacy and numeracy
  • A relevant qualification or willingness to study for a qualification for Learning Support Assistants.


Benefits to this role include a secure, friendly and professional working environment; training and encouragement to build a long-term career with the company, pension, free-parking, are as standard. 

Safeguarding young people is our primary focus and the welfare of the children on site is paramount. Therefore we have a corporate responsibility to ensure that the safeguarding and G4S values are at the Centre of all we do.
