The Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy (QMEA) is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the Queensland Resources Council (QRC) which provides a talent pipeline of employees into the resources sector and other supporting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) industries.

Participating schools

The QMEA Gateway to Industry Schools project offers a range of programs and experiences to broaden knowledge of the sector for teachers and students in Years 7 to 12 and provide pathways for young people into resource sector and related careers.

View a list of current QMEA schools.

QMEA activities are structured across 3 phases:

  • Stimulating Interest and Making Connections (Years 7–8)
  • Informing Decisions and Influencing Pathways (Years 9–10)
  • Challenging and Preparing (Years 11–12).

Opportunities and events

Teacher professional development is offered by QMEA staff and third-party innovation partners. To find out more, view the QMEA calendar of events.

Students can participate in part day, whole day and extended experiences, including the annual 6 day camps offered in various locations across Queensland.

Students and teachers are engaged in both trade and professional programs which focus on STEM-related areas, aligning to the Australian and Queensland curricula where practical.

Teachers and students also have access to a range of specially developed and contextualised curriculum and teaching resources through Oresome Resources, the QRCs education website.
