Health career pathways formed through partnership


The future of Loddon Campaspe’s health sector is looking bright thanks to a new partnership between regional health services and educators to increase the health workforce and help meet the region’s future health needs.

The Loddon Campaspe Health Sector Skills and Pathways Road Map 2021 – a new blueprint to manage gaps in the region’s health sector was launched in Bendigo today.

The Road Map will enable stronger links between industry educators and training providers, and identifies clear pathways for students and volunteers towards a qualification in areas including nursing, allied health, Aboriginal healthcare and and aged care and disability.

The health sector is a vital and expanding area of economic activity for central Victoria region and is the largest local employer, accounting for approximately 17,300 workers across the Loddon Campaspe region.

To address the region’s higher-than-average youth unemployment rate, the Road Map recommends attracting more young people to a career in health by offering clear pathways through quality education and training.

The Road Map’s recommendations are drawn from extensive engagement with students, educators, trainers,  current employees and industry professionals, and build on the strengths of the region’s existing learning systems.

The Road Map was developed after the Loddon Campaspe Regional Partnership identified the growing need for skilled local workers within the sector and was made possible thanks to funding from the Loddon Mallee Regional Development Australia Committee.
