Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Case for Change – Open for Consultation

SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Industry Reference Committee (IRC), has prepared a Case for Change detailing changes required to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker training package products, packaged within the Health Training Package, to ensure they are reflective of contemporary industry skills needs.

An engagement paper was circulated during November and December 2017 that asked for feedback on issues within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker sector.

The findings of the project’s research and consultation have informed the development of a Draft Case for Change. There are a number of gaps identified in this Case for Change and in some areas new Units of Competency have been recommended to address these gaps. It is initially anticipated that there will be 18 new Units of Competency to address these gaps.

The VET qualifications that are to be considered for inclusion in the Case for Change are:

  • HLT20113 Certificate II in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care
  • HLT30113 Certificate III in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care
  • HLT40113 Certificate IV in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care
  • HLT40213 Certificate IV in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care Practice
  • HLT50113 Diploma of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care
  • HLT50213 Diploma of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care Practice
  • HLT60113 Advanced Diploma of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Care.

Please click here to access the draft Case for Change and register your feedback.  Feedback is open until close of business on Thursday 14 June 2018.
