Minister for Corrections David Elliott on the 24th of May, 2017 announced BSI Learning had won the contract to deliver the majority of the education and training in NSW prisons.
BSI Learning as the registered training organisation was appointed following a rigorous tender process.
“Through this partnership, Corrective Services NSW plans to increase the number of inmates participating in education and training by 20 per cent, making offenders job-ready upon release, more equipped to integrate into society and less likely to reoffend,” Mr Elliott said.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with Correctional Services NSW to deliver the inmate education program to improve employment prospects and give them an opportunity to make their own choices,” Mr Ivan Kaye, Chairman and Founder of the BSI Group of Companies said. “However, this is just one of many unrelated communities that need our help in one form or another.”
“We live in a rapidly changing world and no matter whether you are an inmate, an entrepreneur or in the public sector, you are not going to thrive without continuous learning, collaboration and peer support.” Mr Kaye said.
BSI Learning has been a major provider of educational services to government departments, corporates, non for profits, job services and the correctional services sector. BSI Learning has worked in the Queensland prison system for more than 16 years and has delivered the VET in Prisons Program over the past 10 years.
