The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) regulates more than 800,000 registered health practitioners and over 180,000 registered students across 16 health professions.

  • 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 on Aboriginal and Torres Islander health practice and the conduct of programs of study.

The Board is seeking applications from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health practitioners 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
