Minister Scullion launched the Correctional Services Training and Employment Program (C-STEP) at Maxima

Senator the Hon Nigel Scullion, Minister for Indigenous Affairs, launched the Correctional Services Training and Employment Program (C-STEP) at The Maxima Group’s national headquarters at 180 Port Road, Hindmarsh.

C-Step is a program designed to offer a unique opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to participate in the new Correctional Services Training and Employment Program (C-STEP), a pre-vocational training program that has the potential to lead to employment as a Trainee Correctional Officer or other roles within the Department for Correctional Services.

The Board, management and staff of Maxima are delighted to continue our long association with the Commonwealth Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

Funding provided under the Indigenous Advancement Strategy underpins the C-STEP program and we are pleased to be working with the Australian Government on this important initiative as we, as a nation, keep striving to close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australia.

As a not-for-profit Maxima has worked for more than thirty years to support people from all sectors of our community in the pursuit of meaningful employment. We are committed to the simple idea that the economic, social and other benefits of sustainable employment are a right that all Australians should enjoy, not the least of whom are First Australians.  At Maxima we are especially proud of our long-standing service to Aboriginal people and their communities.

This program is specifically designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, to provide Participants with a training program that has the potential to lead to employment as a trainee correctional officer within the Department for Correctional Services.
