Two inmates learn work skills under supervision. A large number of people who are imprisoned have few work skills, and many have never had a paid job. Corrections Inmate Employment (CIE) is the branch of the Department of Corrections reponsible for training inmates in work skills. The aim is to increase their chances of employment on release, thereby reducing the chances of reoffending. Training takes place in prisons, usually for low- to medium-security prisoners. They are trained for industries including catering, laundries, printing, furniture making, forestry, timber processing, farming, nursery work, organic gardening, engineering, light assembly and pre-cast concrete manufacturing.
