Start your healthcare career through the Aunty Fay Carroll program
TAFE NSW’s partnership with St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney is getting First Nations people into healthcare jobs through the Aunty Fay Carroll program.
“She had a passion for Aboriginal people and our culture and receiving great care in hospitals. The gap (of) life expectancy in this country between our First Nations people and the rest of Australia is sadly too wide. Mum wanted to help close that gap.” says Luke Carroll, son of Aunty Fay.
As a graduate of the program, Rie Vee Fish says her Certificate III in Health Services Assistance has given her “a great pathway to become an AIN (Assistant in Nursing) at St Vincents.”
With the success of the Aunty Fay Carroll program, St Vincents Hospital has worked in collaboration with TAFE NSW to expand into other areas, creating more opportunities for Indigenous people to work in the health system.
