Gateway to Industry Schools Program (GISP) – Health

The Gateway to Industry Schools Program (GISP) - Health is a two-year project being delivered by CheckUP in partnership with Queensland’s Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT). The program aims to develop school students' knowledge and understanding of the varied roles available in the health workforce and improve their access to learning and experiential opportunities in Queensland's growing health sector. 

Across 2020-2021, CheckUP will engage a wide network of schools, training providers, tertiary education institutions and health service providers to -  

  • Provide experiential learning opportunities for students through demonstrations, workplace trials and work sampling projects with health industry employers. 
  • Provide professional development and learning opportunities for teachers involved in health education and related programs.
  • Create vocational education and training (VET) opportunities for high school students with an interest in a future healthcare career.
  • Prepare students for and define pathways to further education and employment in health, with an aim to meet local workforce demands.
