Busy times for the Health Gateway to Industry Schools Program team
Terms two and three are by far the busiest months for the Health Gateway to Industry Schools Program (Gateway) team with most of our schools hosting Career Expos and information sessions for their students, families and local community members during these terms.
Many of these events have taken place in the Southeast corner of the state with Gateway to Industry Schools Manager, Sabrina Kerr attending five events over the past month. During this time Sabrina spoke with students from Trinity College - Beenleigh, Mabel Park State High School, St Michael’s – Merrimac and McAuley College – Beaudesert about the Health Gateway, Choose Your Own Health Career website and the Healthcare is Everywhere online learning resource.
Kat Murray, who supports schools in Brisbane North and the Sunshine Coast also attended a Careers Expo at Trinity College and the St James College Open Day. Kat spent the day at St James College speaking to prospective students, their families and community members about the program and showcased the great resources that are available for students who undertake the Cert II in Health Support Services and Cert III in Health Service Assistance qualifications coordinated by the college.
Central Queensland Gateway Manager and Regional Coordinator, Cassie French travelled to Yeppoon to attend the St Ursual’s College Yeppoon Careers Event where she spoke to students about the Health GISP program. Students were interested in hearing about the program and the resources available to them.
In addition to the Career Expos and information sessions the team have also been busy meeting with schools interested in partnering with the Health GISP. General Manager, David Millichap and North and North West Gateway Manager and Regional Coordinator Lyn Anderson recently met with Spinifex State College in Mount Isa who are keen to join the Health GISP.
