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

Participating schools

Through collaborative Gateway to Industry Hubs (Gateway Hubs), teachers and students engage with industry from both trade and professional backgrounds.

A range of experiences are offered to broaden science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) knowledge and develop best practice models of pipelining talent to manufacturing and engineering industries, including:

  • aerospace and defence
  • digital and print media
  • construction
  • textiles, leather, clothing and footwear
  • mining equipment, technology and services
  • transport (vehicle, marine, rail)
  • resources and renewable energy
  • biomedical and biotechnology
  • agriculture (including precision agriculture)
  • food and beverage processing
  • design and furnishings.

Gateway Hubs actively engage with industry to provide real world learning and experiences for teachers and students, including advanced manufacturing technologies (industry 4.0).

Programs offered include:

  • Reach programs (Prep - Year 5)
  • Interest programs (Years 6 - 8)
  • Involve programs (Years 9 - 11)
  • Activate programs (Years 12 - 13)
  • Gateway Days (teacher STEAM PD and currency in industry).

Gateway Hubs for manufacturing and engineering welcome teachers from all schools to participate in the Gateway Days and quarterly Gateway Network Meetings with industry. Hubs are located at the following lead schools:

  • Advancing Manufacturing & Engineering - Kelvin Grove State College, Brisbane.
  • Vehicle Manufacturing & Engineering - Glenala State High School, Durack, Brisbane West.
  • Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering - Maryborough State High School, North Coast.
  • Agricultural Manufacturing & Engineering - Dalby State High School, Darling Downs.
