It’s never to late to get back into studying!
In fact, last year the number of mature age students (25-64 year olds) in Australia had increased again on the previous yeas.
The way we see it, age is no barrier. As long as you have a passion for helping others; and you possess the drive to succeed, nothing can stand in your way.
Having life experience behind you may actually give you an advantage because the older we become, the richer our experience of life becomes. Factor in the latest projections from the government which predict immense growth in allied health and pre-hospital careers – there is now a unique opportunity to take advantage of this and create that career you’ve always dreamed of.
Here are some of the benefits of being a mature age paramedical student at APC:
Education has become a lifelong process where you must continually up skill in order to keep up with the unpredictability of the workplace. We are seeing huge social shifts in the way we work. Advances in Artificial Intelligence and machine learning will change the way we work forever – so be ready to take advantage of this new era and prepare to future-proof your career. In the health care industry, regular up-skilling is a vital to ensure workers are kept up to date with new treatments, equipment and safety standards.
