Industries & Vocational Training

On 2 February 2009, the Correctional Services Industries (CSI) was reorganised and merged with the Vocational Training Unit to form the Industries & Vocational Training (I&VT) Section subsumed in the Rehabilitation Division. After the reorganization, the I&VT Section comprises 3 Industries Units and 1 Vocational Training Unit. The Industries Units continue to manage the industrial operations in providing a wide range of quality goods and services to the public market sector that enables offenders to acquire good working habit and contribute to society during their imprisonment. The Vocational Training Unit on the other hand provides vocational training for both young and adult offenders that help them gain accredited skills and recognised qualifications for enhancing their post-release employability. The provision of meaningful work and vocational training, together with other rehabilitative programmes and measures, aim at facilitating offenders' rehabilitation and social reintegration, which ultimately contribute to building a safer and more inclusive society.
