Education & Skill Development

Inmates are employed in afforestation work, livestock and agricultural activities, viticulture, timber docking, kitchen/laundry, horticulture, apple orchard, building maintenance, forklift, tractor operations and ground maintenance.

Inmates also work in service areas such as general maintenance, cleaning, gardening, and the laundry.

The Adult Education and Vocational Training Institute (AEVTI) provides literacy, numeracy and communications courses in all centres. Many centres also offer vocational courses such as Information Technology, Horticulture, Construction, Visual Arts and Contemporary Craft.

AEVTI contracts TAFE NSW and other providers to deliver courses in a range of vocational areas such as Hospitality, Business Skills, Building, Cleaning, Transport, Aboriginal Studies, Horticulture and various WorkCover licenses.

AEVTI also co-ordinates traineeships and apprenticeships and offers support for distance education.

Each centre has a library giving inmates access to a range of fiction, non-fiction and reference books. Inmates can also login to a secure internal network called the Inmate Legal Portal which gives them access to material of a legal nature.
