Registered Training Organisation
Provider Number 90198.
HETI provides governance of the NSW Health Registered Training Organisation (RTO) which is registered with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) to deliver Vocational Education and Training (VET) Qualifications.
The RTO supports the provision of VET education to the NSW Health workforce through delivery partners (Local Health Districts and Specialty Health Networks) across the state, and across a broad range of industry sectors including health services, business services and training and assessment.
For example, two delivery partners are accredited to deliver Diploma’s of Nursing – more than 85% of students are currently employed as enrolled nurses within NSW Health.
Delivery partners may also provide training to non-NSW Health employees where it can be demonstrated this will benefit the health workforce and address skill shortages.
In 2017, more than 120 NSW school students were successful in gaining a Certificate III in Health Services Assistance as part of their HSC VET Program – giving them opportunity to apply for Assistant in Nursing positions when they have finished school.
The RTO also offers training under the NSW Government's Smart and Skilled Program, NSW Health Traineeships, Nursing and Midwifery Office - Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled Nurse) Scholarships and the Department of Education's VET in Schools programs.
