Alexander Maconochie Centre—education and training programs(Question No 19)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Corrections, upon notice, on 4 December 2020:

(1) What is the highest level of qualification an inmate can study within the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC).

(2) What education institutions does the AMC partner with to deliver these high level qualifications.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

I have been advised by the Justice and Community Safety Directorate that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect relevant information to assemble responses would require a considerable diversion of resources.

In this instance, it is inappropriate to divert resources from other priority activities for the purposes of answering the Member’s questions. I do however offer the member a verbal briefing with relevant officials to discuss the questions asked.
