First Graduations at Dept. of Corrections

June Robinson (ICDL Manager) was part of a very special graduation ceremony in Auckland last week. In partnership with the Department of Corrections, the ICDL team have planned and implemented a pilot programme to improve the digital literacy of women in prison.

Auckland Region Women’s Corrections Facility was the first of three pilot sites to present 36 ICDL Digital Awareness Certificates in a graduation ceremony.

“It was really rewarding to present them with their certificates,” says June, “the women have worked hard over the last few months. They value ICDL as they realise this qualification will increase their prospects once they are released”.
