Given the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Aviation Australia will continue to monitor the situation and its impact on industry and schools. Aviation Australia will continue to develop and adapt their program appropriately and in line with the evolving situation.

The Aerospace Gateway to Industry Schools project supports the growth and development of an effective workforce for the aerospace industry.

Participating schools partner with the industry to proactively engage and inspire students to consider a skilled, diverse and sustainable career in aerospace or related industries.

The industry-school partnerships create pathways for students into Queensland's aerospace industry, with opportunities for:

  • structured workplace learning
  • school-based apprenticeships and traineeships
  • full-time employment
  • further study.

The project 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.

Participating schools

The project involves government and non-government Queensland secondary schools and more than 30 industry partners including local aerospace entities, training providers and universities.

Schools participating in the project are committed to infusing aerospace education into the school which includes, but is not limited to:

  • contexualising aerospace learning experiences with an established pathway for junior secondary
  • offering dedicated aerospace systems subject in Years 11 and 12
  • an option to provide VET qualifications
  • committing to working with aerospace industry and higher education partners linked to the program
  • offering regular aerospace related co-curricular activities with local feeder schools.
