Healthcare is Everywhere Interactive Tool – Supporting Resources
Healthcare is Everywhere, an interactive learning tool developed by CheckUP as part of the Health Gateway to Industry Schools Project. The aim of the tool is to provide an interactive learning experience for school students and parents to learn about the healthcare system and the variety of jobs available within the health industry.
The tool includes both a metropolitan/city view and a rural/remote community view to demonstrate that access to and health service provision can look quite different depending on where you live.
Users explore the hypothetical city and rural community by zooming in and scrolling around both settings to discover a range of health services and the career opportunities available. Users select a health service building which then opens a series of rooms e.g. reception, administration, clinic, consult room. Each room contains an overview of what activities might occur in that setting as well as a range of potential career opportunities with links to further information.
The supporting resources below have been developed to assist high school Teacher’s to promote and utilise the Healthcare is Everywhere tool as part of student learning.

Potential Industry Partners
Schools often find it challenging to engage with potential local industry. To assist with this task CheckUP have undertaken a mapping exercise to seek out each of our participating schools potential local industry partners. Schools are encouraged to reach out to their local industry to form strong partnerships and fostering ongoing relationships. Schools might also wish to pass the information on to their students to seek their own potential traineeships, apprenticeships or work experience.
Below you will find links to a list of local health providers for each Gateway school. Please note that these spreadsheets will be uploaded from time to time so please check regularly for any new partnerships or providers.
