Karyn Buck is the founder of The Buck Project and the Managing Director of The Learning Ladder. This innovative project delivers a highly specialised programme of Mentoring for Progression and has received a number of national awards. Karyn is an experienced trainer and motivational speaker, specialising in mentoring, her presentations have been described as memorable, highly active, fun and totally inspirational. She covers topics such as communication, motivation, personal development, training and networking.

The Buck Project has trained many prisoners, who have experienced higher education themselves, to be peer mentors. In truth, most prisoners want to work and have opportunities which never existed in their life prior to coming to prison.

These projects help people who have become disengaged from society gain qualifications, find employment and become good role models.
