Queensland Resources Academy showcased in South Africa

Queensland’s virtual academy of 32 secondary schools that paves the way for students to enter the resources sector is being showcased at a conference in South Africa this week.

Director of the Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy (QMEA) Katrina-Lee Jones will present at the prestigious Investing in African Mining Indaba conference - the world's largest mining investment event - at the invitation of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

The QMEA is Australia’s largest and most successful industry-schools partnership – a collaboration between the Queensland Resources Council, the Queensland Government and education and training providers.

The academy provides a talent pipeline into industry by offering a suite of programs and experiences to broaden students’ and teachers’ knowledge of the sector and provide pathways for young people into resources sector-related careers.

‘We hope that governments in Africa will see the QMEA as a model to provide a talent pipeline for their own resources sectors,’ said Ms Jones.

Ms Jones will also promote the QRC’s Oresome Resources online learning portal, recently adapted as a bilingual resource for Papua New Guinea.

She is scheduled to participate in a panel discussion on ‘Improving workforce productivity through local skills development in Africa’ on Wednesday 11 February 2015.
