Novus offers learning, skills, support and opportunity to men, women and young people at over 50 locations across England and Wales, providing local knowledge with national experience. 

We work in Adult Prisons in seven regions of England, grouped in accordance with the geographic division employed by the Ministry of Justice’s Prison Education Framework: Cumbria and Lancashire; Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cheshire; London; Tees and Wear; West Midlands; Women’s Estate North and Yorkshire. We also work in three Private Prisons in Merseyside, Nottinghamshire and Warwickshire and in Wales as part of our Novus Cambria and Novus Gower joint ventures. 

Our Young People’s team work in two young offender institutions in the North and South of England.
