Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples can apply for sponsorship to complete a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, delivered by the ANMF (Vic Branch) Education Centre.
HESTA is providing funding to cover fees for two students to undertake the next TAE course starting on 18 November 2021.
Education in health is a growing industry and experienced nurses, midwives and personal care workers wanting to work in education, whether in their workplace, vocational education sector or a clinical setting, often require the formal TAE qualification.
This initiative is part of HESTA’s long-standing association with the ANMF (Vic Branch).
The sponsorships recognise the need to improve opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples working in the health and community sector.
