THE Hela Education Service (HES) has taken a step further in its effort to provide more opportunities for its students, director Ronny Angu says.
Angu said a visit by the education team to Port Moresby this week has led them along the Hiritano highway to Bereina where they signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Community Health Worker’s Training Centre.
“This is a milestone achievement for the team,” he said.
Angu said the main purpose of the trip was to visit the training centre and talk with the management team and to sign the MOU that would see HES, Hela government and St Gerard Community Health Workers Training College form a partnership to train students from the province.
“The MOU will create a platform that will allow young people in the province who have the passion and the interest to serve as community health workers (CHW) to come to the college to train.”
Angu said after completing the training programme, the CHWs would return to Hela to boost its healthcare services in the districts.
He encouraged students who had completed Fode in the province to apply to St Gerard’s.
