Teaching Incarcerated Students

Conference 21.7

Presented by

Rufus James

NEAS Australia

Have you ever imagined going to work with your uniform adorned with epaulettes, carrying a massive bunch of keys & throwing your body weight against heavy metal doors that crash closed with a deafening clang? Working with incarcerated students can be the most rewarding, challenging & demanding job, but is truly one that makes a difference to both students & the wider community. This interactive & engaging session will take you on a wild ride through the trials, tribulations & successes of being an Education Officer in a men’s high security prison & discuss the innovative introduction of a teacher training course for Peer Tutors.
