A division of Corrective Services NSW, Corrective Services Industries (CSI) operates workshops and factories in NSW prisons which design, manufacture and provide a diverse range of products and services to a number of organisations. The most common industries are laundry, catering, ground maintenance, general industries and buy ups (warehousing and distribution of products).
Overseers are trade or vocationally qualified Correctional Officers with the essential role of supervising inmates in their work related activities within correctional centres. This will involve managing, coaching, instructing and encouraging inmates as members of a team in order to gain experience and qualifications.
Prior to employment at a correctional facility, Overseers must successfully complete a 10 week full-time Primary Training course that equips them with program delivery, weapons training and survival training.
