Leaders Unlocked has been working in the education sector since our inception. Our work aims to develop student voice, leadership and social action within education institutions and the wider communities they serve.

“Leaders Unlocked have real credibility as an organisation that enables students to take action on things that matter to them. They use a co-production approach which helps to develop the agency and voice of young people and supports them to leverage power and extend influence.”

Gill Burbridge, Principal Leyton Sixth Form College

"Leaders Unlocked has become a really critical partner. The great thing about it is the peer-to-peer aspect and the way the young people use their networks to reach out to a large number of young people. The reach has been phenomenal - across schools, colleges, hostels. We have dealt with many difficult issues, from stop and search to knife crime."
