The health industry is currently one of Australia’s largest and fastest growing industries and one we need to support by providing quality education and training opportunities.
Due to our ageing population, along with expanding private health coverage, the healthcare industry has grown significantly over the past five years. This has amplified the demand for health services across various sectors. We have seen employment increase, with over 1.7 million people employed within the sector in 2020 and it has been suggested that this will further increase to more than 1.9 million by 2024.
Currently, according to SEEK, there are over 18,500 listed vacancies within the Healthcare and Medical sector. Lead by Victoria with over 5,000, followed by New South Wales with over 5,000, then Queensland and Western Australia. This is indicative of the employment opportunities available not to mention other sources such as LinkedIn, CareerOne and various other job platforms, which would further compound these numbers.
To provide its students with adequate opportunity to gain employment within the Health industry, IVET Group continues to invest significant time, energy and resources into its Health-related training products. For example, we have recently increased our course offerings to the following:
We believe that providing the right options, resources, and support assists in opening doors to career opportunities for students within this rapidly growing industry, whilst simultaneously catering to our nation’s need for more skilled and qualified health services workers.

What jobs can these lead to? However not limited to:
Recent studies have indicated that skills development for this everchanging sector needs to focus more on interpersonal skills such as teamwork and communication, as well as intrapersonal skills such as emotional intelligence, critical thinking, resilience, stress tolerance and flexibility. Technical skills are of course required and highly important, however, these specific areas have been identified as the transferable skills crucial to underpinning them.
Technology, automation, AI, globalisation, an ageing population, and shifts in workforce demographics are just some of the drivers behind ongoing change within the Health sector. IVET aims to always be abreast of these changes and to arm its students with up-to-date knowledge and the skills required to succeed in the Health sector, today and into the future.
