Social and Community Pathway

The Social and Community Services Vocational Pathway will lead you into roles which involve caring for people. Expect work which is focused on social justice, fairness and dealing directly with people in the community, at times in their life when they really need it. You will find these jobs very satisfying and rewarding. You might work in healthcare, childcare, education, social services, mental health or community services. Please see Youth Guarantee for a comprehensive list of vocational opportunities in this Pathway.
