​​​​​​​​​Welcome to the Brush Farm Corrective Services Academy

The Academy is Corrective Services New South Wales’ enterprise registered training organisation which delivers nationally recognised qualifications from Certificate III to Advanced Diploma level to our workforce. We specialise in providing innovative learning opportunities aligned to industry benchmarks to enhance staff capabilities, support implementation of safe and secure correctional services, and contribute to reductions in reoffending. Our face to face and online training programs are also offered to external customers on a fee-for-service arrangement.

Located on the historically significant Brush Farm Estate close to the geographic centre of Sydney, the Academy contains well-equipped training rooms conducive to enhancing educational outcomes, a large conference space available for hire, on-site accommodation facilities, and catering options.

I am proud that the Academy is recognised as a leading provider of correctional training within Australia and the Asia-Pacific region, and I look forward to continuing to lead a culture of continuous improvement and our significant contributions to community safety.

I invite you to spend some time navigating our website, whether it be checking out our Yarning Circle recently commissioned to honour the traditional custodians of the land (the Wallumedegal people of the Eora Nation), meeting our new mascot (Rookie), or enjoying some celebratory parade footage of graduating recruits (soon to come).
