Background

Work continues to create career development pathways for Aboriginal staff to move into more senior roles within the Department of Justice and Community Safety (DJCS), but elements of the strategy to develop a public and community sector secondment program and Aboriginal justice qualification have not yet commenced.

DJCS supports Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations to undertake workforce development to build capacity of Aboriginal staff working in the justice sector through provisions for workforce development in funding agreements.
