VACRO is committed to investing in our sector’s future by developing the skills and knowledge of students who want to pursue a career in the criminal justice system.

We regularly accept students on placement from a variety of courses, hosted in research, project or practical placements. By joining our team, you’ll build new knowledge and skills to complement the expertise gained through your study.

We value the insight and expertise of people with lived experience of the criminal justice system. Learn more about doing a student placement at VACRO with a criminal record, and how lived experience can influence VACRO's work in the future.
