Unlocked is a unique two-year leadership development programme aimed at attracting a different kind of leader to work in prisons and focus on rehabilitation and reducing reoffending.
Currently, 46% of prisoners reoffend within 12 months of release, creating yet more victims, causing untold damage, and costing the UK more than £15bn. Graduates joining Unlocked will help to tackle this. They will develop as inspirational leaders, capable of changing behaviour and supporting prisoners to make positive choices. They will also acquire skills and experiences that transfer to other employment and leadership settings, and gain a master’s degree alongside working as prison officers in category B or C prisons in London and the South East.
