Event description

Description

Nacro are the providers of education at Medway STC (secure centre for children aged 12-17) are holding an open day event in June to promote the work of the education department. The open day will provide an opportunity for student teachers who are interested in working /learning more about offender learning and the benefits education can provide to the young people.

We are offering two sessions during the day for interested students to visit;

10:00 -12.00 slot 1, max 10 visitors

14:00 -16:00 slot 2, max 10 visitors

The number of visitors attending each session will be capped at ten. Each two hour slot will consist of a tour of the centre, a visit to one or more of the classrooms to meet with/observe learners and a talk with one or more of the teachers to gain a better understanding of working in a secure setting.

Places to attend these kind of events are in high demand and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We anticipate there will be future events held later in the year. It is important to know that if you sign up to attend we would need you to confirm your attendance by 22/06/17, due to security and clearance reasons reception need to know in advance who is visiting.

Please leave all valuables, phones, USB sticks, Ipods/Ipads etc. locked in your car or ask for a locker key in reception. You will be searched and asked- if you have any contraband items on your person, the best thing to do is to carry as little as possible, a pen and a pad. Please see below the prohibited items list.
