About Us

Who we are

MTC is a global leader in corrections, operating 23 Job Corps centres, 21 correctional facilities, 11 prison and detention medical departments, five detention centres, and two workforce development sites worldwide – with a mission to help improve people’s lives. MTC is headquartered in Centreville, Utah and employs nearly 8,500 people.

Currently in correctional facilities and detention centres MTC is managing close to 33,000 men and women in the United States. In the United Kingdom, MTC also operates a secure training centre for young people.

Our Australian corrections experience encompasses:

  • Borallon Correctional Centre contract to manage and operate was awarded by Queensland Corrective Services in 2000 and in 2005 Queensland Corrective Services extended the contract for a further two (2) years. 
  • Parklea Correctional Centre contract, where MTC-Broadspectrum is currently contracted by Corrective Services NSW to deliver a full range of operational services, including rehabilitation programs.

MTC currently educates and trains more than 20,400 vulnerable young people in its Job Corps centres, which address barriers to employment faced by low-income youth who are often disproportionally impacted by learning disabilities, mental health issues and a lack of family support. 

MTC also provides safe and secure rehabilitation and transition services to over 22,000 prisoners. This includes providing rehabilitative programs to provide people the opportunity to improve and further develop the literacy, numeracy, and technical and life skills required to find and keep jobs. MTC also delivers industry-relevant training, tailored to local priorities and with the support of the local business community.
