CQUniversity Bundaberg is prepared for a post-COVID world and is taking steps to ensure students are well placed for the post COVID jobs market.
According to the Australian Government’s Job Outlook data, post 2020 will see a shift in the Australian job market with newly introduced technologies prompting new ways for businesses to operate.
That data also showed that there is likely to be a high demand in industries where employment has grown strongly already in recent years, including in health care and social assistance; professional, scientific and technical services; education and training; and construction.
CQUniversity’s Vice-President who is based in Bundaberg, Professor Helen Huntly guaranteed the university was well placed to provide quality graduates into this cross section of in-demand industries.
“CQUniversity’s strength in providing education and training in health care, social assistance, business and IT, as well as primary and secondary education, will see the University play a vital role in meeting the needs of Australia’s post-pandemic job market.
“CQUniversity has traditionally been a major provider of both nursing and teaching graduates, and in recent years has graduated hundreds of allied health professionals to address and support the health needs of both metropolitan and regional Australia.
“We have traditionally and will continue to help meet the demand for aged and disability carers to support the aged care sector and the National Disability Insurance Scheme through our TAFE course offerings.”
Professor Huntly said she was confident that the University could provide the highly qualified professionals required for software and application programming, management and organizational analysis and accounting.
“CQUniversity has always been committed to providing industry-ready graduates, and we will continue to monitor community and industry needs as we design courses for the future.
“The University is committed to working with a variety of industries in a post-pandemic job market, providing highly skilled graduates in key areas of job growth.”
