27 Jun 2018

Call for applications for appointment to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Accreditation Committee.

The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme regulates more than 670,000 registered health practitioners and over 150,000 registered students across 14 health professions.  It also accredits over 740 approved programs of study delivered by over 330 education providers.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Board of Australia (the Board) is calling for applications for appointment to the Accreditation Committee (the Committee). 

The role of the Committee is to exercise accreditation functions under the National Law assigned by the Board. The functions are to:

  • develop accreditation standards
  • assess programs of study
  • monitor approved programs of study and education providers to ensure they continue to meet the accreditation standards, and
  • advise the Board of issues in education and practice which may impact upon Aboriginal and Torres Islander health practice and the conduct of programs of study.

The Board is seeking applications from registered health practitioners, educationalists and accreditation experts with current or recent experience in:

  • Education - preferably with experience working in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector and in delivering training in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care (Practice), and
  • Accreditation - preferably within the health sector.

Applications will be assessed by a Selection Advisory Panel. Appointments are for up to three years, with eligibility for re-appointment, and are expected to commence in late 2018.
