GP Synergy is committed to encouraging and supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health professionals as an important step towards closing the gap in the health disparity experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Supporting AMS staff to achieve formal qualifications in training and assessment is part of that commitment.
The Certificate IV Training and Assessment [link to info sheet], is a nationally recognised qualification offered as a customised training program for Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service (ACCHS) staff within the GP Synergy NSW/ACT network.
The program is delivered by OTEN (Open Training and Education Network), Western Sydney Institute TAFE NSW, in partnership with GP Synergy, and has been developed to meet the needs of health care workers in ACCHSs in areas of cultural safety, providing them with the skills to deliver and assess cultural safety training.
This qualification is suitable for staff who manage the operations and promotion of professional practices in the health sector, such as community cultural mentors, Aboriginal health professionals, practice managers, and those deemed appropriate by an ACCHS’s CEO.
For more information about the Certificate IV Training and Assessment for ACCHSs please contact the GP Synergy Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Education Unit on 1300 477 963 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
