Working in the correctional environment in NSW can be challenging, but also very rewarding. The government and the community expect us to carry out our work to the highest professional standards, deliver effective offender management programs and maintain a high level of public accountability.


In order to manage these responsibilities successfully, ongoing professional development and good leadership are critical. CSNSW, through the Academy, has developed a range of learning and development programs for staff at all levels. They are designed to improve staff capabilities in a number of areas, and help you deal more effectively and successfully with the variety of challenges confronting you in your work within corrections.
