ACS’ ICT Gateway to Industry Schools program connects and facilitates partnerships between secondary schools and their students, parents and educators with employers across the ICT sector in Queensland.
The Gateway to Industry Schools program (GISP) for Information and Communications Technology is one of four new priority industry sectors involved in the Queensland Government’s key industry-school engagement strategy taking the number of priority industry sectors to ten. The GISP is a component of a state-wide industry engagement and workforce development strategy to support the long-term development of a highly skilled workforce in Queensland.
ACS has developed a School and Industry Cluster model that aims to create foundation opportunities for young Queenslanders to make informed decisions on a career in the tech sector, to assist secondary school educators to better understand and teach the Australian Digital Technologies Curriculum and to connect our next generation to ICT employers in Queensland that is expected to grow by nearly 3% or 13 000 positions over the next 4 years.
