Management of Rehabilitation and Correctional Services

In today’s fast changing world, the need for highly efficient management of correctional settings and similar institutions has never been greater. Effective management of correctional settings, has been linked, both in theory and practice, to sustained economic development and is the key to developing modern correctional settings systems and principles. Governments and correctional settings services around the world are undergoing processes of renewal and reform that demand new knowledge, skills and leadership abilities in order to meet the new challenges and take advantage of the new opportunities in correctional settings management. 

The Galilee International Management Institute offers an intensive workshop to introduce and update correctional settings managers, to high performance management.

This shift in the focus of correctional settings management has led to the move from an input to an output orientation. The stress on quality prisoner-based service and the increasing role of performance-based management systems, gives rise to a new concept of responsible professionalism within the correctional setting.
