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:

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