About

Novus, part of LTE group, is the UK leader and innovator in offender education, skills and employability interventions that reduce reoffending and divert people from criminal behaviour, allowing them to make a positive contribution to society.

We work with the Ministry of Justice, National Offender Management Service, the Youth Justice Board and a wide variety of partner organisations.

Novus works in more than 60 establishments, with a 90% success rate for offender learning courses. Latest inspections by HMIP and Ofsted of our provision in prisons graded 80% ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’, the reversal of the national figure of 43%.

Working with over 65,000 offenders annually, we are the top-performing provider in the justice sector for delivering on contract provision. We operate in three of the four UK prisons which have ‘outstanding’ Ofsted grades.

We pride ourselves on being an innovative not-for-profit social enterprise that helps people to achieve their potential. We are transforming lives and laying the foundations for change.

Novus are responsible for Offender Learning in the South East of England, including Kent, London, Sussex and Surrey.
