Aboriginal Employment Plan

Latrobe Regional Hospital is one of the largest employers in Gippsland and is aiming to take a leading role in demonstrating best-practice methods of producing meaningful employment and training outcomes to the local Aboriginal community.

In 2012 Latrobe Regional Hospital developed its first Aboriginal Employment Plan plan in accordance with Karreeta Yirramboi,  a Victorian Government initiative to improve public-sector employment and career development outcomes for Aboriginal people.

Our new plan aligns with Barring Djinang, a five-year strategy by the Victorian Government to enhance Aboriginal employment across the public sector. Barring Djinang has adopted an Aboriginal employment target of 2 per cent for the Victorian Public Service. For LRH, this means an ongoing commitment to meaningful careers for current and future Aboriginal staff.

Aboriginal Employment Plan

 

 

Latrobe Regional Hospital is one the largest employer in Gippsland and is aiming to take a leading role in demonstrating best-practice methods of producing meaningful employment and training outcomes to the local Aboriginal community.

 

In 2012 Latrobe Regional Hospital developed an employment plan in accordance with Karreeta Yirramboi,  a Victorian Government initiativeto improve public-sector employment and career development outcomes for Aboriginal people. The objective of the hospital’s plan is to increase the participation of employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by one per cent of the total workforce.

 

Latrobe Regional Hospital has put in place a number of practical steps to achieve this goal. Two staff are employed to coordinate and support trainees and their supervisors and ensure cultural competency-based training is rolled out across the organisation. They also promote and distribute information about the program throughout the community.

 

The hospital has a focus on traineeships and has developed a strong partnership with Latrobe City Council to deliver its Indigenous Pre-Employment Package which provides seven weeks of accredited training.

 

The program also consists of orientation and paid work experience placements to gain a better understanding of the diverse range of employment opportunities at Latrobe Regional Hospital.

 

Employment at Latrobe Regional Hospital has been linked to the provision of cross-cultural awareness. Hospital staff participate in training to better understand Aboriginal culture and learn how to develop strategies on how to supervise and mentor the trainees.

 

Latrobe Regional Hospital’s Aboriginal Employment Plan offers a direction for today but is evolving and able to move with the requirements of new initiatives for greater employee and partnership opportunities.

Neurology needs your help!

We don't want you to travel to Melbourne for healthcare if you don't have to. That's why we're working hard to provide our specialists with great facilities and the latest equipment.

 

Our neurology service is seeking your help to purchase EEG equipment to measure electricial activity in the brain. It can be used to diagnose conditions such as seizures, tumours or head injuries. You may be surprised to learn there is no permanent EEG machine in Gippsland. Let's change that!
