Working as a Prison Offender Manager & studying Criminology at The Open University
“I chose to study at Long Road because it gave me the independence and freedom that I needed. It was one of the few establishments that offered Criminology, which I really wanted to study. I was really impressed with the practical experience and knowledge that the teachers had too.
I enjoyed the independence that it gave me and the range of learning opportunities and experiences that were offered to us. The interactive learning days and field studies were brilliant. I really enjoyed my time at Long Road – I’m still so amazed by the experiences that I had there!
By studying Criminology, I found a subject that I was passionate about. I used this qualification to start my career in Her Majesty’s Prison Service. I’ve had 3 promotions in 2 years, and I’m currently a Prison Offender Manager. I’m also continuing my love for Criminology by studying it as a part-time degree with the Open University. I hope to continue my passion and use my experience to teach this one day, too.”
