That’s what Education in Sydney is all about.

Our team works to support you in your career, to develop your skills for today and your skills for tomorrow. We want our staff to Think. Learn. Grow. with us.

Sydney Education is for everybody. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you work or what level of education you currently have. This service is for you.

We offer a wide range of education opportunities each year with over 200 different courses/programs being regularly delivered. Our face to face courses and programs are offered across eight different areas including Clinical Practice, Communication and Relationships, Leadership and Management, Education and Research, Work Health and Safety, Quality and Safety, People, Culture and Values, Project Management and Change Management.  

We are also a delivery site of the NSW Health Registered Training Organisation which allows us to offer contextualised qualifications to our staff. We have more than 13 different qualifications that are delivered that range from Certificate II to Graduate Diploma level.


We’ve been delivering education services for almost 20 years.

We were previously known as the Centre for Education and Workforce Development (CEWD) which was established in 2005 with the amalgamation of the former Central Sydney Area Health Service and the South Western Sydney Area Health Service into the Sydney South West Area Health Service. At that time, we were one of the few education services that combined both clinical and non-clinical education under one directorate.

Our diversity is one of our strengths. This has allowed us to grow the types of professional development opportunities that our staff can access.

We know how important it is for learning to be life long and to incorporate different styles including experiential learning, social learning and informal learning.

We also have strong partnerships with other agencies that allow us to offer scholarships for tertiary level qualifications or specialised courses that we cannot deliver internally.
