The Health Sector VET Engagement Working Party came together some time ago, through the Workforce Council stakeholder network, to address the knowledge gap in VET pathways for health and community services careers.
Recognising that there are many opportunities and entry points for individuals to commence or continue their careers, the main objective of this project was to demonstrate the versatility of VET qualifications and the diversity of careers available in health and community services, while focusing in-particular on information that schools would find helpful when preparing Senior Secondary Students to consider their subject selection and post-school study path. We identified 9 careers that were considered ‘popular’ choices, requiring clarity on information, or areas of future job growth.
We are very grateful for industry contributions to the content contained, and acknowledge the hard work of My Health Career founder, Amanda Griffiths, in developing these exciting and FREE resources. If you would like further information or to order a set to be posted to you, please contact Kelly Kerwitz at the Workforce Council on 07 3008 3644 or firstname.lastname@example.org
