National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Academy in the ACT

Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA) runs the National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Health Academy program in the ACT.

IAHA aims to create opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students in Years 10, 11 and 12 through their culturally safe community program. They also help students find work placement opportunities in culturally supportive workplaces and organisations.

With the right foundations, students are supported to build a lasting career in allied health. The ASbA (Australian School based Apprenticeship) program supports students to complete a Certificate III in Allied Health Assistance, a great stepping stone to a career in health.
