CSC Correctional Management


New prison models focus on a range of issues such as drug and alcohol abuse, disadvantaged backgrounds, limited education, poor employment history, health problems, mental illnesses, gender diversity and identity, accommodation issues and poor social skills.

New approaches to correctional practices underscore the relevance of managing large groups of people with complex needs. There is increased awareness of prison demographics and the importance of the skills required, and a growing need for skilled correctional staff that can competently handle prison operations in an appropriate and professional manner.

The Corrections Industry Reference Committee (IRC) proposed this project to review seven existing Units of Competency and develop three new Units of Competency for the Advanced Diploma of Correctional Management.

Project outcomes will ensure that vocational qualifications meet the increasing skills and knowledge demands to address new approaches to correctional management practices that underscore the relevance of managing large groups of people with complex needs and issues.

Updating imported Units of Competency within the Advanced Diploma of Correctional Management that have been previously superseded on the National Register of VET will also be undertaken during this project.
