The Working with Culture and Diversity course is a blended learning program that aims to explore respectful strategies to work with and overcome barriers amongst offenders and colleagues from diverse backgrounds.


There are two parts to this course:

Participants are required to complete the online learning component prior to attending the face-to-face training.

The online component covers;

* key definitions, legislation, policies and procedures and justice values,

* how to work with specific groups including CALD, ATSI, LGBTI, refugees/immigrants and various religious and spiritual beliefs. 


The face-to-face training has a strong operational focus with key speakers and a consolidation of the learning with practical scenarios and strategies to effectively work with diversity and culture in the custodial and community setting.
