How will it work online?

We use Zoom for our online training. Attendees don’t need a Zoom account to join. A link will be sent to attendees a week or so before the training and we will attach a short handout for you to use on the day.

Registration will be from 9.30am. The session will start promptly at 9.45 am and finish at 4.00pm . There will be a mid-morning and mid-afternoon break plus a 45 minute lunch break.

This course has been developed with practitioners in mind. If you are an employer, HR professional or recruiter, please check out our 'Employing with Conviction' training.

We can also provide workshops to university admissions professionals to help them develop policies and practices that assist them in dealing fairly with applicants who have a criminal record.

More information regarding our training services are available on our website here.

Organiser Unlock - for people with criminal records

Organiser of Advising with Conviction - Unlock training workshop (Online event)

Unlock is an independent, award-winning charity for people with convictions which exists for two simple reasons. Firstly, we assist people to move on positively with their lives by empowering them with information, advice and support to overcome the stigma of their previous convictions. Secondly, we seek to promote a fairer and more inclusive society by challenging discriminatory practices and promoting socially just alternatives. 

Our support for people with convictions includes a confidential peer helpline, an information hub, a disclosure calculator, an online forum and a web-based magazine.

We provide support to practitioners through training workshops, and work with employers, education providers, insurers and other organisations to improve their policies, processes and practices to help them to be able to safely and effectively deal with people who have convictions.
