Health & Community Services

The Health/Aged Care, Disability and Community Services professions make a real difference to real people, so it is important that you have a genuine desire to help others, a strong work ethic, and excellent communication skills.

Employment opportunities across all areas are strong, varied and transferable, and best of all – in high demand!

The sector is currently one of Tasmania’s – and Australia’s – largest employment growth areas, so a qualification in one of these key areas will equip you with all the skills you need to set you on the path to an extremely rewarding career.

Jane Turner

Looking for a career change, former journalist, Jane Turner, undertook the Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) at TasTAFE. She says the great teachers, and hands-on practical nature of the course are great preparation for anyone wanting to work in the growing aged care industry.

Following a work placement at Mary Ogilvy Homes during the course, Jane was offered a job with the organisation and now works as an extended care assistant and also helps out in the physiotherapy department.
