RMIT’s School of Vocational Engineering, Health and Sciences has been granted a Workforce Training Innovation Fund (WTIF) worth $3.5m. RMIT is the first Victorian vocational education institution to be granted a fund, with the University’s Diploma of Nursing the first to benefit.

More than $1.5m of the funding will be spent on the Transforming Enrolled Nurse Education program—from conventional learning to situated learning—which was launched at RMIT Bundoora on May 4th. The program, to be delivered in partnership with Northern Health, allows Diploma of Nursing students to step out of the classroom and into the health services’ world-class facilities as part of their studies, exposing them to valuable academic and clinical experiences.
