Education and Community Services

If you have a passion for working with those in need, and you want a job where you can help to make positive changes to the lives of others,  a career in education, local government or community services could be right for you.  With a wide range of options including education assistant, disability or aged care support, youth work, early childhood education, training, mental health support, funeral services and leisure and health this industry area can offer you a challenging and rewarding career. 

Under community services, you can specialise your studies in the areas of mental health, drugs and alcohol abuse, family and domestic violence, housing, adolescent development, or parenting and relationships to get a competitive edge for securing employment in this fast growing industry. These qualifications are also excellent pathways into further study or university. 

The local government qualifications can set you up for a career in areas such as a range of roles in local council or even as a park ranger.
