Unlocked Graduates works in partnership with the University of Suffolk and delivers the MSc in Leadership and Custodial Environments course. The course draws on the latest research in the field and is led by top academic experts. The programme is fully funded and is delivered part-time over two years.
The programme has now placed over 150 graduate prison officers in approximately 14 prisons across London and the South East and was named Graduate Scheme of the Year at the 2018 Personnel Today Awards.
Unlocked Graduates was launched in 2016 to answer the challenge set by the Coates’ Review of Prison Education.
“Unlocked Graduates is reducing rates of reoffending by identifying brilliant people and supporting them to spend two years working as frontline prison officers”
