The Health Heroes campaign is an initiative of the Department of Health and Ageing. It aims to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander secondary students to pursue a job in the health sector.
Key resources available for students and advisers include:
- A Health Heroes website informing students about the range of health jobs, training options, career pathways and support available. The website also includes an interactive career quiz which suggests a range of health jobs based on participants’ interests and skills base
- 20 case study videos of Health Heroes – young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people talking about their real experiences and health-related jobs available on a DVD and on the campaign website
- Health Heroes school resource kits which contain a DVD featuring interviews with the Health Heroes, brochures, posters and lesson plan ideas for teachers and career advisers
