Sustainable Partnerships Australia (SPA) will inspire the next generation of health professionals as one of eight organisations presenting the Regional Health Summit this Friday 9th May, at Clontarf Beach State High School.
The Summit is an initiative set up by SPA’s Partnership Broker Program which aims to build partnerships between education and training, business and industry, parents and family, and the wider community.
Hosted by Clontarf Beach State High School, the event involves tertiary education facilities, public hospital and other health services.
SPA’s Partnership Broker, Breeze Hodges said that over 700 year 10 students from 10 Moreton Bay high schools will come together and discover what health industry career paths are available through interactive workshops and career conversations.
“This is the second time we have hosted the Health Summit and it is such a great opportunity for students to come along and learn that there are more career paths available in the health industry beyond doctors and nurses.
“As a growing workforce sector, it is important for young people to understand the spectrum of health-related occupations and relevant training pathways from school to work,” Breeze said.
Students will encounter hands-on learning in 12 interactive workshops covering a broad range of health occupations including: emergency, medical assisting, medical lab science, podiatry, exercise science, nursing, midwifery and occupational therapy.
