Manufacturing and Engineering

Overview

​​The Manufacturing and Engineering Gateway to Industry Schools project encourages partnerships between industry, government and community to build Queensland's manufacturing and engineering workforce for the future.

The program involves Queensland secondary schools engaging collaboratively with their respective local manufacturing and engineering enterprises, registered training organisations and universities to:

  • ​raise the profile of careers in manufacturing and engineering
  • provide professional development for teachers in the context of manufacturing and engineering
  • develop and implement a range of manufacturing and engineering related activities across industrial technology and design, science, mathematics, English and other key learning curriculum area​s
  • create opportunities for work expe​​​rien​ce, structured work placements, school-based apprenticeships and traineeships, full-time apprenticeships, and pathways to university in preparation for trade, para-professional and professional careers
  • celebrate and share student, teacher, school and industry experiences to ensure young people have the knowledge and experience to make informed decisions about their future.

Progra​m resources

By undertaking study in manufacturing and engineering, students have the opportunity to experience a ra​nge of careers in the industry like fitting and turning, electrical engineering drafting, wood machining or industrial design.

The Queensland Reference Group (QRG) for manufacturing and engineering, acts as the Gateway to Industry Schools steering committee. The QRG encompasses representati​ves from various manufacturing industries, government departments, school sectors, registered training organisations (RTOs), universities and QMI Solutions. Through the QRG, the Gateway to Industry Schools project is developing a range of resources to support Queensland high school teachers and students.

The following resources have been developed by the Gateway to Industry Schools program to promote future career opportunities in manufacturing across the education sector and encourage the focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts (and Design) and Maths (STEAM) in schools to prepare young people for careers in advanced manufacturing.
