2022 project Schools to Surveying linkage project

School to Surveying and Spatial Industry Program in 2022 aims to support two of The Surveyors’ Trust’s strategic pillars of Growth and Brand & Reputation.

We will continue to grow the understanding of the surveying and spatial industry in schools across QLD, through our Partnering for Purpose model, with a medium to long-term aim being to increase the

number of school leavers undertaking further study in these disciplines and/or entry into the industry.

The growth of our engagement with schools, teachers, and students in QLD is also noted nationally. This national awareness of what we are collectively achieving in QLD supports the growth aspirations of The Surveyors’ Trust into other States. We aim to create an awareness of the importance of surveying and spatial professionals and the roles they play in solving problems, and serving our community, in a way that students find relevant. By taking a skills based approach, linked to the Australian Curriculum, we are able to embed real world problems and role models into the classroom, creating authentic learning opportunities and meaningful points for engagement by surveying and spatial industry professionals into schools.

This approach supports The Surveyors’ Trust to grow not only the brand and reputation of the Trust, but also the Industry, as it looks for increased government support and expansion into new markets
