Gateway to Industry Schools Program (GISP) – Health

The Gateway to Industry Schools Program (GISP) - Health is a two-year initiative being developed by CheckUP in partnership with Queensland’s Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT). The initiative aims to develop Queensland’s school students’ practical knowledge in, awareness of, and access to the wide array of opportunities in the health sector to enable them to contribute to state’s growing health workforce. 

Over the next two years, 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. 

An EOI for Gateway Schools and Industry Partners will be available by end June 2020.
