The organisation

Unlocked Graduates is a new organisation that offers top graduates and career changers a ground-breaking opportunity to work in prisons as officers for two years. During this time, participants will focus on breaking cycles of re-offending and giving second chances to those inside, alongside completing a rigorous leadership development training programme. The skills they learn will propel them into leadership roles in a range of sectors when they complete the scheme. Unlocked Graduates wants to see a country where prisons successfully rehabilitate, and reoffending rates are significantly lower.
