Paul pivoting his healthcare career through Mater Education


Paul, a Certificate III Health Services Assistance graduate, has always been an empathetic and compassionate person. With a collective 12 years of experience in community services and disability support, he decided to pivot his career into providing hospital-based care through Mater Education.

“I’ve always been drawn to helping other people. I’ve worked in retail and hospitality in the past, but I’ve always gotten the most fulfilment from providing care.”

His desire to continuously improve led him to complete study in disability support and community services, each of which he gained employment through.

He then decided to study Mater Education’s Certificate III Health Services Assistance course to upskill and experience working in a hospital.

“I chose to study with Mater Education because I felt the hands-on teaching style would benefit me the most. There’s only so much you can learn in a classroom and the educators always encouraged us to give things a go and learn in a safe and supported environment. The simulations were realistic and accurate so I knew I could apply what I was learning to the real world.”
