Careers in health - a growth area
Career Choice: Posted 8-3-17 Deadline - No Deadline
Healthcare and social assistance – which includes doctors, nurses, dentists, physiotherapists, childcare workers and aged care providers – has made the largest contribution to the nation's jobs growth over the past 15 years. It now employs more than 1.5 million people, or one in every eight Australian workers, accounting for 13% of Australia’s workforce. It's also a well-educated sector – about three-quarters of its workers hold a post-school qualification, which is well above the national average. Over the five years to November 2015, employment grew by 20.3% (or 256,600). New jobs were created in all subsectors, but most were in Medical and Other Health Care Services (up by 142,100) with Social Assistance Services also adding a significant number (75,800). Around 250,200 more jobs are expected over the five years to November 2020 (up by 16.4%). Nearly four in five workers in Health Care and Social Assistance have completed post-school study. While a large proportion holds a bachelor degree or higher qualification (44%), vocational education and training (VET) qualifications are also a significant pathway to employment. I highly recommend that you visit this website if you are interested in any health career. Look under VIDEOS and RESOURCES which includes scholarships.

Universities: Posted 14-2-17 Deadline - No Deadline
Bond University College in 2017: Bond recognises that the traditional linear pathway from secondary school into university is not the same for all students. As every student is different, so too is every journey. Since 2007, Bond College, as the inaugural academic pathway provider for Bond University, has been offering pathway programs to bridge the gap and support the transition to further studies. From 2017, with an augmented program offering, Bond University College, will continue this valuable service. The programs will include a range of diplomas for students who have completed Year 12 in Business, Communication, Criminology, Legal Studies, International Hotel and Tourism Management, Sports Management, Sustainable Environments and Planning, and Health Sciences. The program offerings will also include the Bond University Preparation Program for students without a Year 12 graduation equivalency.
