Education & Training

Aboriginal Training

The NSW Health Aboriginal Workforce Strategic Framework 2011 - 2015 focuses on addressing health workforce skill gaps as well as supporting the economic and social wellbeing of Aboriginal people.

A strong partnership exists between the Centre for Education and Workforce Development (CEWD)Yarn'n Aboriginal Employment Services and the Local Health Districts.

South Western Sydney Local Health District has implemented a highly successful Aboriginal traineeship program, with substantial growth and high retention rates in its Aboriginal workforce.

At Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff are offered traineeships, advice on career development and ongoing support within the workplace.
