Improving and Integrating Urban Indigenous Health Services

Pathways, Our Way Academy

The Pathways Our Way Academy, known as POWA, supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to complete training or Traineeships in a variety of roles and qualifications. These include:

  • School-based traineeships for high school students in years 10-12 to complete a Certificate III in Allied Health Assistance.
  • Workforce pathways for community members into training in health, aged care, disability, dental assisting and administrative roles.
  • Trainees and students are provided with wrap-around support, a range of placement opportunities and support for further employment, as well as the ability to engage with local universities to explore pathways into university studies on completion of their traineeship.

IUIH is supported through partnerships with universities, Registered Training Organisations, and The Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT).
