About VACCHO’s Learning Hub

Our Education and Training Unit (ETU) is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). We are registered with the Australian Skills and Qualifications Authority (ASQA) and comply with the National VET Regulator Act and National VET Qualify Framework.

VACCHO assumed a training role in 2000 in response to an analysis of Aboriginal Health Worker training needs conducted in 1999 (Adams/Spratling). VACCHO’s member organisations decided that VACCHO would deliver Aboriginal Health Worker training to its sector.

VACCHO then became a Registered Training Organisation to deliver accredited vocational education and training courses. Training delivery mainly consists of Aboriginal Health Worker qualifications however we have also broadened our Scope of Registration to include other qualifications.

Over 95% of our students identify as being of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent.
