If you want to work in health and community, there is no escaping the need for professional vocational training. Courses in this subject are also available at universities, but it is also worth looking at colleges in Australia and New Zealand, as you may find that their approach to teaching the profession gives you more experience and closer links to the industry.  Most health professions are in high demand everywhere, so your newly acquired skills will never be underused. Courses include: Aged care; alcohol and drugs work; children’s services; welfare work; nursing; youth work; dental technology; dental hygiene; teaching assistance; disability work.
