Have a positive impact

Make a difference in someone's life with a career in Community Services, Health, or Sport & Recreation. Be responsible for the health and wellbeing of your community, caring for people during times of illness, promoting healthy lifestyles, or working to improve people's standards of living. Our courses will give you general skills in communication, ethics, and first aid, as well as specialised skills in drug and alcohol treatment, disability support, pathology, healthcare and nursing, and personal training.

"When students begin to link their theoretical knowledge to clinical practice and it clicks in a practical sense, it’s a really special moment."

– Leah Dridan, GOTAFE Trainer
