Accomplishments & Achievements

Dr William Lockitt receives Winston Churchill Silver Medallion

On 30th May 2012 Dr William Lockitt was awarded the Winston Churchill Silver Medallion for his research into the effective use of technology to train and educate offenders in secure learning environments.

Dr Lockitt visited Norway, Sweden and Germany to see first-hand how the innovative use of technology was improving the employment prospects of offenders upon release from prison and significantly reducing the reoffending rates.

The Silver Medallion was presented by Paralympic champion and Fellow of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, Tanni Grey Thompson in Westminster, London.

William said ‘The research report highlights some of the barriers and issues that have been overcome to ensure prisoners have access to technologies that will enable them to get employment within an increasing technological society and make an active contribution to the community upon release’.
