TAFE Courses

A career in health, children's services, welfare or beauty may provide the right outlet for your personal qualities.

The demand for health and welfare workers is ever present and the vocational learning offered through TAFE Queensland opens doors into a wide range of future workplaces in both private and public health care and welfare.

Childcare workers care for the social, emotional, physical and educational needs of infants and young children.

Community workers may work in specialised areas, such as with older people, people with disabilities or people with alcohol and other drug-related abuse issues.

An ageing population and growing community demand for health and personal services will contribute to good job prospects for many community and health occupations.
