The NT Health Aboriginal Cadetship Program is a key initiative for the Department to increasing employment of Aboriginal people as health professionals. Cadetships enable eligible Aboriginal tertiary students undertaking their first undergraduate degree or postgraduate studies to gain professional health qualifications and experience that will lead to entry to practice upon completion of their studies. These students are collectively called ‘Cadets’.
Through the NT Health Aboriginal Cadetship Program, the Department will employ Cadets who are:
* undertaking full time study at an Australian university to complete their first undergraduate degree; and
* have already successfully completed the first year of their undergraduate degree; and/or
* are undertaking Honours/Masters studies as part of their first undergraduate degree or;
* are undertaking other postgraduate studies required for entry to practice in a profession relevant to NT Health.
The 2020 NT Health Aboriginal Cadetship Program will offer a cadetship to five students.
To be eligible to apply for an Aboriginal Cadetship, you must:
* be of Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent;
* identify as an Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander;
* be accepted as an Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander in the community in which they live, or has lived;
