Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander pharmacy assistant traineeship scheme

 

Overview

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander pharmacy assistant traineeship scheme aims to support the community pharmacy workforce by encouraging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to enter pharmacy assistant roles. The scheme aims to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander pharmacy assistants in community pharmacies and establish alternative pathways for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students to enter into pharmacy.

Incentive allowances of $10,000 are available to community pharmacies to employ and train an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Pharmacy Assistant Trainee to complete a nationally accredited Pharmacy Assistant training course within two years. Allowances are limited based on available funds.
