The Civilian Teacher was employed to give hairdressing lessons to the inmates in Highfield Prison where David Platt was imprisoned for breaking the terms of his parole for a previous offence. During one lesson, David created a diversion by momentarily hiding a pair of scissors to enable fellow inmate Abe Crowley to pass on a smuggled mobile phone before he was searched.
During another lesson the teacher used David's skills as a barber to show the other lads how hair should be cut, and he was further able to divide the class into two groups with David leading one set while the teacher concentrated on the other.
- The character's final appearance was in a non-speaking capacity and therefore uncredited.
