Our vision and mission

Our vision

Netcare Education strives to be the education, training and development provider of choice for the healthcare industry.

Our mission

Netcare Education believes in the constitutional assertion that all people have the right to quality education and healthcare.

As such, our core objective is to ensure that our students will be capable and skilled healthcare providers who are able to proudly offer the best evidence based practice and care to their patients. In doing so, they will contribute to the strengthening of the South African economy, democracy and social fabric.

We will achieve this by offering outstanding industry-relevant training, education and development solutions.

We espouse the following principles:

  • Life-long learning as a way of personal, professional and vocational improvement.
  • Continuous research and implementation of evidence-based best-practice, in order to uplift our healthcare offering to our communities, and educational services to our students.
  • Development of solid partnerships and collaborations with key public, private and regulatory stakeholders, in order to exert a positive influence in the areas of policy design and service delivery.
  • Quality assurance in all our conduct as a market leader of healthcare education and training.
  • Celebration of diversity among our people, upholding human dignity as a constitutional right and a philosophy that underpins all learning activities within our institution.
  • The transformational role of education and training, in normalising the past inequities in education and employment practices within the healthcare sector by giving priority access to historically disadvantaged South Africans.

We develop our curricula and conduct our programmes in such a way as to produce independent thinkers, researchers and healthcare providers who will excel in their chosen field of professionalism, and become the leaders of tomorrow's healthcare industry. We strive to be recognised as the healthcare industry education, training and development provider of choice in the healthcare industry.
