Aerospace Gateway Schools program

The Aerospace Gateway to Industry Schools program was established to support the growth and development of an effective workforce for the aviation industry sector. This program provides opportunities for young people to undertake structured workplace learning, school-based apprenticeships and traineeships, full-time employment and further study through industry-school partnerships and has proven essential in meeting the Queensland Government’s aim of transitioning young people from school to work while completing school and gaining formal qualifications.

The program currently involves a total of 18* Queensland secondary schools (government and non-government), with 300 students throughout Queensland studying Aerospace studies. There are over 30 industry partners and supporters engaged, including, local aerospace entities, training institutions and universities. These partners all contribute to creating pathways for students into Queensland’s aerospace industry.
