A shipping container turned Medical Pod is transforming the future of our health industry
The Health Hub Program at Marsden State High School (SHS) is teaching students the necessary skills to effectively support the functioning of health services.
Early last year, Canstruct Group provided Marsden SHS with a Mobile Medical Pod to kick-start their Health Hub Program.
Retrospectively, in 2020, 50 Marsden SHS students completed a Certificate II in Health Support Services with an additional 15 students completing a Certificate III in Health Support Assistant.
This year, that figure is expected to double.
In addition to the Certificate II Program, Marsden SHS is coordinating a Certificate III in Health Assistant at the end of the year for graduating students.
This is all about career pathways, 20 students studying the Cert III will potentially proceed to further learning and development in the health industry at either the Diploma level or at university.
Upon completing their tertiary study, potential job opportunities include aged or disability care, nursing, paramedicine and physiotherapy.
Marsden SHS are also working to develop relationships with tertiary institutions and organisations to possibly develop the school into a ‘Gateway School’ that connects students to the health industry.
