Karen Simmonds

Karen began her career in offender learning as a sessional tutor in 2001 teaching ICT to young offenders.  She has progressed through various roles and has been responsible for prisons in the South Central region for the last 7 years.  Her drive is supporting our staff to be the best they can possibly be to enable our learners to flourish and achieve above what they ever felt possible.  Enabling learners to change not only their lives but also those people around them is at the heart of her work with offenders.
