REGISTER YOUR INTEREST NOW: Canterbury Health Holiday Program!

Dear Students, Parents and Carers,

Our Canterbury Health Holiday Program will commence on Monday 27 June 2022.


Canterbury Health courses are available to students in Years 10 – 12, who are interested in getting a career head-start in the Health Care sector.

Successful completion of these courses will qualify students to work as an Assistant In Nursing (AIN) and provide the foundational knowledge needed to undertake further studies in this field.

The Certificate II and Certificate III Courses are completed as a package – commencing in the June/July school holidays and finishing in the September/October school holidays.

They are conducted in partnership with Axiom College in our purpose-built Canterbury Health Mini-Hospital in P Block.

The Canterbury Health program will:

  1. Develop the skills needed to comply with infection prevention and Workplace Health & Safety (WHS).
  2. Guide students to interpret and apply medical terminology and recognise healthy body systems.
  3. Teach students how to transport clients and carry out nursing assistant duties in various settings.


The program will run from 9:00am to 3:00pm each day during the school holidays.

The first part of the course will run from Monday 27 June to Friday 8 July 2022, and the remainder of the course will run from Monday 19 September to Friday 30 September 2022.

For eligible students, the Canterbury Health program is significantly subsidised by VETis funding from the Federal Government to the value of $2,000.

The remaining out-of-pocket cost is $800 and will be charged to parents/carers in your Term 3 SRC, with the fee including a professional grade nursing kit and scrubs.
