The Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy, launched by premier Peter Beattie on Wednesday, is a partnership of the Department of Education and the Arts, the Queensland Resources Council and training and academic providers.

 

The academy involves three hubs – at Mt Isa, Moranbah and Gladstone – and 19 gateway high schools, which will develop and promote curriculum structures and enable students to access a broad range of learning and career opportunities related to minerals and energy.

 

This will involve close contact with Queensland Resources Council member companies, including work experience and other on-site activities.
