HEALTH SERVICES

The health sector continues to be one of Australia’s largest and fastest growing employers. Occupations such as health services assistants, massage therapists and pathology collectors are in high demand to adequately meet community expectations and service delivery requirements.

Our health courses have been designed to make use of the skills laboratory, SCEI massage clinic and compulsory work placement component to ensure students develop and are assessed on skills and knowledge as they apply to realistic situations.
