2015 QMEA Student Ambassadors Presentation

11/12/2014
2015 QMEA Student Ambassadors Presentation
 
 
Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy (QMEA) is Australia’s largest and most successful industry/education schools partnership between the Queensland resources sector represented by the Queensland Resources Council and the Queensland Government.  The partnership provides a range of opportunities for students, teachers, schools and industry partners within the resource sectors across both the professional and trade pathways.
 
Toolooa has been a QMEA school for a number of years participating in events such as Career Café, It’s all about me and biodiversity days for students in grades 7 to 11.
 
Senior students have the opportunity to apply to be student ambassadors (up to 10 trade/vocational and 10 professional/university positions are available) with the goal of increasing their understanding of the resources sector.  Students are required to complete a written application, attach supporting documentation and if shortlisted  participate in an interview. As an ambassador they will be provided with unparalleled opportunities for networking with other students and industry representatives and develop leadership skills as well as being asked to participate in a number of QMEA activities, and where appropriate may be asked to promote the QMEA and the benefits of working in the resources sector to industry, students and the community.
 
On Tuesday 2nd December Kaitlyn Read was presented with her QMEA ambassador certificate for 2015 by Mr Michael Roche, Chief Executive, Queensland Resources Council and Chairman of the Queensland and Mineral and Energy Academy Board and Mr Robert Cavallucci MP, Assistant Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Member for Brisbane Central.
 
 
Congratulations Kaitlyn and all the best in 2015 as a QMEA ambassador.
