We are Unlocked Graduates
We pride ourselves on being innovative and bringing change to a system that is in dire need of fresh thinking and ideas.
You can change people's lives for the better and have an impact on wider society.
Unlocked Graduates is a two year programme that is putting brilliant graduates and career changers at the heart of prison reform. At the moment, nearly half of all prisoners re-offend within a year of release, creating yet more victims, causing untold damage, and costing the UK more than £15bn.
Our solution is a unique leadership programme where participants work as frontline prison officers while completing a fully-funded master’s degree in leadership. They support prisoners to turn their lives around, lead system change and develop the skills to excel no matter where they go in the future.
Working in a prison is one of the most challenging environments that you can work in - you don't sit behind a desk completing tasks all day but are involved in negotiating, influencing and leading the people you work with to make better decisions with their actions and their lives.
