VET in Prisons

BSI Learning’s Vocational Education Training (VET) in Prisons program is a joint initiative between the QLD Corrective Services and the QLD Department of Education, Training and Employment.

We are currently delivering the nationally accredited training program in 16 Correctional Centres and Probation and Parole district offices across QLD.

The main objective of this program is to support the rehabilitation of prisoners by creating education and training pathways that lead to employment and skill sets to assist prisoners with the reintegration into the community. We achieve this by customising our delivery to suit the corrective service environment. We also deliver both full qualifications and statement of attainments.

Accredited Training currently being delivered by our team includes:
•    Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN)
•    Certificate II and III in Hospitality
•    Certificate II in Kitchen Operations
•    White Card
•    Certificate II and III in Cleaning Operations

We take pride in our high delivery standards as well the exceptional trainers who provide the prisoners with the support necessary to achieve positive outcomes. Our qualified and experienced trainers are inducted into working within each correctional centre. All trainers maintain industry currency to enable the offenders to gain real skills and insight into employment opportunities upon release.

Testimonial

  • "The program has been extremely beneficial to me. Our facilitator is a very engaging presenter and can make all topics very interesting. I particularly enjoyed the emotional intelligence topic and the different strategies I now have to be more effective and influential."

  • "I get up every time to make the most of opportunities for myself and those under my wings. What makes me most happy is when I read that I have touched someone’s inner self for the betterment of oneself. In particular prisoners who experience the limitations of their lives after leaving prison. If we can help them to turn around the ship and provide a little hope and some self-esteem, then, we have achieved the greater goal of our efforts that makes it all worthwhile and satisfactory for us and the work and effort we put into it.

    Most prisoners are grateful for what we offer and do; they make good students and come to class for the right reasons. This is what fascinates and drives me. I have had 2 fantastic weeks at BWCC and was able to successfully pass 8 new students as competent baristas, some of them were truly outstanding!"
