The Future Self program is proudly supported by the Department of Education and Training.

This initiative aims to enhance and support the learning, transition and aspirational mindset of rural and regional students at the upper primary and secondary school levels. The aim of the program is to build the career aspirations of students by increasing exposure to mentoring, role models and post school pathways. Industry Ambassadors will support students to achieve a greater understanding of employment opportunities and career pathways through school engagement activities such as school presentations, workplace tours, Q&A sessions and supporting a student on work placement.

Intro

Hi! My name is Cath Beaufort. I work at Alfred Health and I’m based at Latrobe Regional Hospital in Traralgon. My role involves running the day-to-day operations of a Radiation Oncology Centre. I have a background as a Radiation Therapist, treating cancer patients with high energy x-rays on machines called Linear Accelerators, as well as planning their treatment using CT images. While I don’t treat the patients anymore, I oversee the department to ensure our patients receive high quality radiation therapy every time.
