About CYO Health Career

This website has been designed for high school students, VET Coordinators, Career Advisors, Guidance Officers and parents and aims to highlight the many job opportunities which are available within the health sector which can be achieved with vocational education and training – from entry level roles to more senior positions.


Funded by Queensland Health, and coordinated by CheckUP, a range of experts from within the health and community sectors in Queensland have identified the jobs which are currently in high demand in their particular fields, where skill shortages exist, and those jobs where strong growth is predicted in the next 5-10 years. The pathways, job profiles and case studies included on this website promote the priority jobs which were identified by these stakeholders.
