Careers Evening – Health and Social Sciences

Published on Thursday, 22 October 2020 at 12:00:00 AM

On Thursday 22nd October, the Pilbara Universities Centre hosted its second careers evening for 2020.  This fantastic evening focused on the Health and Social Sciences industries where current and prospective students learned about being a nurse, social worker, psychologist, dietician and speech pathologist in the Pilbara along with providing a networking opportunity for local people to meet other people working in a similar profession.

Prospective students experienced the wonderful facility, meet PUC’s tutors, learned about how tertiary education opportunities were possible for them and heard from current students about their experiences and tertiary education journey with the PUC.  

We would like to thank all the amazing health professionals who spoke and shared their stories.

“A few things struck a chord with me. One is that education has no age barrier. And you need to go into study with an open mind. You might take two steps forward, one back and another sideways. Just embrace it and enjoy the journey.” – Shelley, new STEPS student, age 60

It was a fantastic evening, and we are incredibly grateful for all the work our health workers do in our community.
