Te Rau Ora Work Based Placements
Addiction-related harm from alcohol, other drug use and gambling in our society, impacts on individuals, whānau and the community.
The effects are experienced across a number of systems including health (physical, mental health and spiritual), education, criminal offending, employment and relationships. Coexisting conditions is the norm rather than the exception.
To grow a ‘fit-for-purpose’ workforce Health Workforce New Zealand funds Te Rau Ora to provide opportunities for scholarships and work-based placements for those wanting to contribute to whānau ora.
Work-based placements allow one to experience ‘work’ and the opportunity to gain and apply knowledge, skills, and feelings in a relevant setting. Exposed to authentic work practices work-based placements can be an important means of developing work readiness and or achieving personal or professional development goals.
Work based-placements contribute to growing the capability and capacity of a workforce. Introducing new workers into the workforce via work-based work experience increases capacity. The Hoe Rua programme increases capacity within the addiction treatment system in that the work-based placements are particularly for people who are seeking experience, training and employment within the addiction system.
This programme offers work-based placement opportunities for up to twelve months with an approved host organisation.
Host Application is for organisations that want to join the programme, and Placement Applications is for the individuals who want to apply for the opportunity to become placements with a successful host.
