Supporting the Healthcare Workforce

Healthcare services in New Zealand are delivered by a complex network of organisations and people across the primary, secondary and allied health sectors.

Huge demand for health services is stretching our health system which increases the need for more healthcare support workers. A qualified and skilled Kaiāwhina or care and support workforce is integral to supporting health professionals to operate at the top of their scope.

We offer a range of qualifications for specialist disciplines within the healthcare sector. Investing in training is an investment in the future health and wellbeing of New Zealand.

It’s the most amazing feeling when
you make a positive difference
in someone’s life. I am
forever humbled by my work.

Tracey Currie | Mental Health and Addiction Support Worker
