The Government has decided to outsource most of CSNSW’ education and vocational training services for inmates. The Intensive Learning Centres will be retained and a range of new positions will be created to determine inmate needs. CSNSW will work with and monitor specialist organisations who will deliver education and vocational training in the future. The Government is expecting that these reforms will double the number of inmates completing literacy and numeracy courses, and increase vocational training by at least 20 per cent. There will also be changes to some of the courses provided to enhance employment opportunities for inmates released from custody. Information and support will be provided for affected staff during this process.
