The Gateway to Industry Schools program is a key industry engagement strategy for the Department of Small Business, Employment and Training and aligns with the department's vision for all Queenslanders to have the skills and opportunities to participate and prosper in the economy.
The program builds partnerships between schools and industry to enable young people to acquire the knowledge, skills and attributes to participate effectively in the Queensland economy and provides opportunities for industry and the education sector to work together to deliver outcomes for students, local communities and businesses.
Students participating in the program are exposed to a range of learning experience to assist them in their career choices and pathways to employment.
Each project is led by industry organisations which develop and implement tailored school engagement activities in line with their industry's key skills and workforce priorities. Industry organisations choose how the industry specific projects operate and the type and level of engagement with participating schools.
