Update as of 18 March 2020

Postponement of Careerforce Youth in Health and Wellbeing Events

Regretfully, we need to advise the postponement of our Youth in Health and Wellbeing Events that were scheduled for May and June of this year. We have had to make this unfortunate decision in light of recent Covid-19 developments.

We were very excited about these events, and with the response we had received from schools and employers. This is very much a postponement, not a cancellation. We are working closely with the Ministry of Education, and will be in touch again with new event dates as the situation becomes clearer.

Thank you for your understanding.

Stay safe and well.


Join us and explore careers in health and wellbeing!

With support from the Ministry of Education, Careerforce the Industry Training Organisation for the health and wellbeing sectors are running career exploration events for high school students. The health and wellbeing sector needs more young people in the workforce to combat the existing workforce shortages.

The health and wellbeing sectors offer many exciting and rewarding career opportunities for young people, who want to make both a career, and a difference.

These sectors cover the likes of healthcare, social and community services, mental health, disability support, aged care, and youth work. Common across all the sectors is the increasingly challenging workforce shortages, and the need to attract younger people into their workforces.

We welcome high school students interested in:

  • Pursuing a career within health and wellbeing, and earning as they’re learning.
  • Helping people recover from illness or injury to live independent lives.
  • Caring for the aged and vulnerable in the community.
  • Providing quality service and patient care.
  • Working with other young people to reach their full potential.

For any questions, email

We’ll bring together students and employers. We’ll invite inspiring speakers who have made a career in these sectors.

We have planned interactive workshops, activities and allowed time for employers and students to interact.
