Health Navigator Project Partnership

Oct 25, 2021 | Case Studies

PartnMelbourne Polytechnic’s Health Navigator Project was a collaborative project which embedded a 6-week health education elective unit into the English as an Additional Language curriculum. The course supported students to navigate the health system, increase their health literacy and feedback their own experiences. Pathways to employment were facilitated through collaboration with local health and settlement services, including volunteering positions and work as Bicultural Health Navigators. The Health Navigator Project was developed by MP in partnership with the Department of Health, Northern Health and Whittlesea Community Connections, and drawing from internal partnerships.
