In 2012, Michael Gleadow and Dr. Naomi Gleadow founded Connect ‘n’ Grow to help Australia’s First People. With their education and health backgrounds, the couple decided to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
In recent years, keeping in mind the predicted shortage of healthcare professionals and depleting reputation of RTOs, we realized our need to go beyond. Connect ‘n’ Grow therefore have now expanded to mainstream schools, businesses, and individuals—giving every person that aspires to have a successful career in health and social service an opportunity.
We are a dedicated team working to bring quality health education to you. Our company is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) that aims to spearhead change. Our Qualifications, Skill-Sets, and Short Courses (NanoQuals®) are designed to increase your desirability as employees. At our core, however, we will always have a special place for those who really need our help.
As we keep growing with you, we hope to increase Australia’s health workforce substantially. Together, we can become torchbearers in the field of Health and Community Services.
- Solid foundation skills to enter the health workforce.
- Quality training to stay up-to-date with industry trends.
- Opportunities to engage with universities, training and employment providers.
- Opportunities to increase health literacy in Australia.
