Gladstone Students on Tour

In October, a group of Year 10 students looking to broaden their career horizons stopped by the RACQ CapRescue hangar to get an insight into the many roles and requirements involved in working with a rescue service.

The PREQIP students from Gladstone had the rare opportunity to learn more about our day-to-day operations and how the crew and staff work together to keep our helicopter flying. This included chatting to our administration staff, engineers, doctors and paramedics about their roles within our service, touring the hangar facility and helicopters, and asking our pilots, aircrewman, and rescue crewman about their emergency response procedures.

PREQIP is an individualised Career Development and Case Management model for Year 10 Indigenous students in the Gladstone Region to investigate and be counselled around potential career opportunities in the region.

RACQ CapRescue would like to acknowledge our long-standing partners ConocoPhillips, as the downstream operator of APLNG, s and Santos GLNG who with the assistance of Shell’s QGC business, help deliver this valuable program to the students from Gladstone State High School, Toolooa State High School, Calliope State High School and Tannum Sands State High School. ConocoPhillips, Santos GLNG, and Shell’s QGC business play an integral role in the development of work ready students, who will be our communities next generation workforce and your future employees.
