Experiential Opportunities

Although NSW Health organisations work to shared policies and guidelines, there are differences in the way each organisation operates, and particularly how their Finance, Procurement, and Asset Management functions are delivered to deliver services and outcomes for the people of NSW.

As the evidence indicates that more than 70% of learning is done in the workplace, the Academy supports a range of opportunities for experiential learning.
