Best practice

Because of our umbrella organisation, we maintain strict protocols and strategies in accordance with our RTO obligations. 

Wellbeing and educational practices are mandated by the rules which comply with HIA’s own purpose, which includes assisting team members to act ethically and in accordance with the principles of the professional conduct established by HIA’s rules and regulations. 

We welcome team members, associates and contractors who believe in what we do, and who want to make a difference, and who walk their talk. Please note that only until a therapist or contractor has signed that they are in agreement with HIA’s organisational values, principles, work ethics and practices, and they have demonstrated that their accountability and responsibility will suit our organisational needs, the therapist/contractor is taken onboard at HIA strictly on a trial only basis.
