Where does it lead?

This course opens up the pathway to studying Year 13 Health Education. Health related jobs are in high demand both locally and internationally. Learning in senior Health Education provides a strong foundation for pathways into the social and health sciences (education, psychology, sociology, philosophy, politics, law, economics, medicine, health, justice, and social services). Many tertiary courses exist that are based around non medical health studies.
