Event Details

Study Local, Stay Local - GV Rural Health Careers Workshop The GV Rural Health Careers Workshop will be held from 9.30am to 2.15pm, Thursday, 26 May 2016, bringing together high school students from across the region to explore careers in health. Students will visit GV Health and the Department of Rural Health, University of Melbourne campuses, Graham Street, Shepparton, to discover the opportunities available to study and work in the health industry. Approximately 150 students from Year 9 and Year 10, who are interested in pursuing a career in health, will represent more than 19 schools from throughout the Goulburn Valley. The Careers Workshop provides students with an interactive opportunity to discover more about the range of career options available in the health sector, talk to health experts and higher education leaders about career pathways, undertake practical workshops and explore study options. The day is the result of a collaborative partnership between the Department of Rural Health - University of Melbourne, GV Health, City of Greater Shepparton, La Trobe University, GOTAFE, State Government, CVGT, Goulburn Murray LLEN and Rumbalara. The focus for the workshop this year is ‘Study Local, Stay Local’; highlighting that it is possible to study a health-related course locally and find a job in that field right here in the Goulburn Valley. Students do not have to move away to pursue a career; there are outstanding educational and career opportunities available right here in Shepparton. The workshop will help students navigate the various pathway options from school through to traineeships, TAFE or University. We have introduced residential and community aged care workshops this year. This specialty area is currently facing skills shortages due to the rapid increase in demand for care from Baby Boomers. Aged care facilities are growing and many elderly people are also being supported to stay in their homes longer. Radiography and exercise physiology have also proven to be very popular workshops this year.
