The Education Program

We have a strong focus on providing basic education to prisoners and offenders.

Improved literacy and numeracy skills has been demonstrated to help reduce re-offending.

VTEC are our Registered Training Organisation and can deliver fully developed competency based training.

Volunteers with an education or tutoring background can:

  • assist Education Coordinators and other staff to provide literacy and numeracy skills to prisoners and offenders
  • support staff to provide a dynamic learning environment
  • provide ‘One to One’ support in literacy, numeracy, English as a second language and computing skills
  • help provide resources to support the curriculum
  • proof read student work and
  • support the implementation of our education assessment tools if they have relevant qualifications.

Prisoners interested in this program can contact their case manager for details.
