Join The Gateway to Industry Schools Program

Program Criteria

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us – success will come to those that can manage and lead with technology, not just in Information and Communications Technology (ICT), but in any field individuals may enter.

So how do you ensure that you are providing the greatest opportunities for students and educators so that they are not left behind? How do help your students land that dream job, if that job doesn’t yet exist? How do you prepare your teachers for the new wave of technology?

ACS’ ICT GISP is one of the new priority industry sectors involved in the Queensland Government’s key industry-school engagement strategy - the Gateway to Industry Schools Program. As part of ACS’ ICT GISP delivery model we are looking to establish School and Industry Clusters in the Brisbane South, Brisbane North, Gold Coast, Ipswich, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba/Downs South West, Wide Bay, Townsville, Rockhampton and Cairns regions.

The ICT GISP is seeking secondary schools in these above mentioned areas to be part of our program to provide education and career opportunities for school students and educators by connecting them with industry so they are able to make informed subject selections, apply more holistic teaching methodologies and make better decisions about a pathway into an ICT career or related industry with these transferrable skills.
