Our Vision is to become the UK leader and innovator in offender learning, skills and employability.
As a Group our shared Mission is to improve lives and economic success through learning and skills. We are of the firm and passionate belief that education can change lives, so we take great pride in raising the aspirations of learners to increase employability and reduce re-offending.
We are dedicated to transforming the lives and economic potential of offenders by providing them with the pinnacle of offender education, training and employability services, regardless of their background. Delivering learning and skills in more than 50 sites in the UK, we give offenders the knowledge, self-esteem and confidence to thrive in the world of work. Working with key partner organisations we will continue to strive to make a difference.
As an organisation, we share a common set of values across everything we do.
We are honest, trustworthy and open.
We collaborate, respect each other and contribute to team goals.
We are forward-thinking, we innovate and take ownership.
We are positive, inclusive, flexible and proactive.
We take long-term view, environmentally, financially and socially.
Novus has built successful and effective partnerships that work to the benefit of offenders and ex-offenders.
From the long-standing working relationships to the more recent partnerships we have forged, we are delighted to join forces in transforming the lives of children, young people and adults through the provision of high quality learning and employability skills.
Working with the Ministry of Justice, the Youth Justice Board and Her Majesty's Prison and Probation Service as well as a wide range of visionary charities and organisations, we strive to raise our learners’ aspirations, support them back into purposeful activity, prepare them for the world of work and consequently reduce the risk of re-offending.
Our partners offer crucial strategic input into the delivery of our services and provide an insight into their sector, ensuring Novus evolves and our work remains of the highest quality.
We are always open to new and innovative ways to extend our reach and put even more people on the path to a crime-free future, so if you are interested in partnering with us please get in touch.Partner with us
