Our Founder Professor Joan Winch started Marr Mooditj Training to offer Aboriginal people the opportunity to access Training and educational programs that provide skill and knowledge to in Healthcare.
Today Marr Mooditj Training has matured and grown to become one of the Leading Aboriginal Managed Registered Training Organisation in Western Australia delivering Health and Community Services related qualification.
Marr Mooditj continues to be a strong advocate for better health outcomes and is committed to providing recognised qualification to achieve this.
Our motto still today is “Aboriginal Health in Aboriginal Hands”.
At Marr Mooditj Training we continue to promote awareness of social and emotional wellbeing. We consider total health meaning taking a holistic approach to an individual’s wellbeing. We do this by providing a safe and cultural learning environment where we celebrate our student’s achievements together.
We continue to have the City of South Perth participating, and this year we welcome the City of Victoria Park on board, along with the WA Police Force. We look forward and encourage the wider community to get involved in our community at Marr Mooditj Training.

There are around 360,000 nurses and midwives registered in Australia, and the majority of Midwives and Child Health Nurses are women (98.6%).
At Marr Mooditj Mark Walters (Midwife) and Daniel Larranaga (Child Health Nurse) are all too familiar with being in a minority in the nursing profession. Daniel is an educator in the Enrolled Nursing team, and Mark in the Primary Health Care Practice team. Both bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their teaching, with the drive and enthusiasm that is critical to ensure there is diversity and strength in the health teaching field. Their role as educators and role models is essential in cultivating and sustaining more skilled Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men in nursing and primary health care.
