The Gateway to Industry Schools project for the hydrogen industry (GISPH2) facilitates sustainable partnerships between industry, the government and the education sector to:
- advance Queensland's hydrogen workforce development
- attract new workers
- guide future training.
GISPH2 broadens science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) knowledge to diversify and assist in accelerating future skills and opportunities towards the hydrogen industry. Queensland is set to be at the forefront of renewable hydrogen production in Australia by 2030.
From production, engineering, storage to distribution and exporting, GISPH2 offers various opportunities for schools to become involved.
Through actively engaging with industry, Gateway schools are provided with the advantage of timely learning and experiences for teachers and students to support a strong hydrogen future.
Programs offered include:
- Involve programs (Years 9–10)
- Activate programs (Years 11–12)
- Gateway Days (teacher STEAM professional development and currency in industry).
GISPH2 welcomes teachers from all schools to participate in the Gateway Days and activities.
This project was established as part of the Hydrogen Industry Workforce Development Roadmap aimed at creating a skilled, hydrogen-ready workforce that will support Queensland's exciting and fast-growing hydrogen sector.
GISPH2 is a key focus area within the Good people. Good jobs: Queensland Workforce Strategy 2022–2032.
