Aerospace and Aviation

St Mary’s College is the only all girls school in Queensland, and the only school in Ipswich that is part of The Aerospace Gateway to Industry Schools program. 

The Aerospace Gateway to Industry Schools program was established to support the growth and development of an effective workforce for the aviation industry sector. This program provides opportunities for young people to undertake structured workplace learning, school-based apprenticeships and traineeships, full-time employment and further study through industry-school partnerships. The program has proven essential in meeting the Queensland Government’s aim of transitioning young people from school to work while completing school and gaining formal qualifications.

Under the agreement, St Mary’s College offers a Certificate II in Engineering Pathways and a Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot – Visual Line of Sight). The agreement guarantees automatic entry into a Bachelor of Aviation for graduates of the College who have completed the Certificate III in aviation.
