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.
