The Corrections Industry Reference Committee have drafted Training Package materials for the Correctional Practice project and are inviting feedback from stakeholders.
The Certificate III and Certificate IV in Correctional Practice and 35 Units of Competency have been reviewed and updated to ensure the training products continue to align with current job roles and work practices. Two new units have been developed for the Certificate III to address skills requirements of Correctional Officers to supervise offenders outside of a correctional facility and to maintain the safety and welfare of offenders in short-term incarceration.
A Professional Wellbeing and Resilience Skill Set has also been developed to address the skills and knowledge required by Correctional Officers in identifying and dealing with stressful situations and to protect their mental health and wellbeing.
More details including the draft materials and how feedback can be submitted can be viewed on the Australian Industry Standards website.
Feedback is required by COB Tuesday 8 March 2022.
