Inmates are employed in workshops specialising in metal work, powder coating, upholstery, laundry and maintenance services. These workshops produce products for government, private and commercial organisations.
Employment is also available in internal and external grounds maintenance, wildlife care, building maintenance, clerical work and full-time education. All inmates, other than those excluded by illness or disability, are expected to work.
Accredited courses, with nationally recognised qualifications, are made available to inmates at each correctional centre.
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 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.
For more information regarding these programs visit the AEVTI WebPage.
The Complex has a world famous wildlife centre which gives inmates the chance to work with the NSW Wildlife Information and Rescue Service (WIRES) and Sydney Metropolitan Wildlife Services, caring for injured, orphaned and sick animals.
