The Health Education and Training Institute Higher Education Strategic Plan released

19/01/2016

The Health Education and Training Institute is embarking on a journey to become a Higher Education Provider for NSW Health. HETI is applying to the Tertiary Education and Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA) to register as a Higher Education Provider and to accredit two new mental health programs.

This Higher Education Strategic Plan will establish the Health Education and Training Institute as a Higher Education Provider with an initial focus on the delivery of higher education programs focused on the mental health workforce. 

The Higher Education Strategic Plan is a culmination of extensive consultation and draws on: 

  • the Strategic Plans of the Health Education and Training Institute and the NSW Institute of Psychiatry, both developed following consultation with staff, NSW Health organisations, community managed organisations and the public
  • consultation with a representative group of key stakeholders within NSW Health 
  • review of the NSW Institute of Psychiatry, by the Mental Health Commission
  • various consultations with the mental health sector to identify and develop the mental health higher education frameworks.
