Lukas Carey

Deputy Principal – Youth Futures Community School / Criminology Academic

Dr. Lukas Carey completed his Phd in education and has worked in the field for most of his working life as a coach, teacher, trainer and educator. While filling a role in local government he was charged with receiving commissions and served time in a Victorian Prison. During that time Lukas used his theoretical lived experience knowledge to study the educational happenings inside the justice system and its influence over the future employment opportunities upon release. With an interest in the role previously incarcerated people have in the development of policy and procedure in the justice system and the educational opportunities provided whilst incarcerated, Lukas is a strong advocate in the Convict Criminology field. The importance of the lived experiences of previously incarcerated people drives the work Lukas is doing in the criminology, education and research fields.
