Stepping Stone education program

The Logan Hospital Expansion has developed the Stepping Stone program—a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engage with local high schools and inspire the next generation of engineers, project managers, designers, architects, tradespeople and more.

As one of Logan City’s largest infrastructure projects, we recognise our unique position to provide exposure to the many professions and skilled trades it takes to build a hospital.

The program offers students real-life exposure to the construction industry, and to hear directly from engineers, architects, project managers and other professionals through a series of talks, workshops, site visits and more.

The program aims to:

  • inspire high school students to consider a career in the construction industry and discover career opportunities
  • provide a broad insight into different career pathways within the relevant industries
  • support students from all experience levels as they gain first-hand insights into what it might be like to work in the skilled trades.

During the week-long program, students have direct contact with professionals in the following fields:

  • architecture
  • engineering
  • project management
  • project site management
  • interface management
  • workplace health and safety
  • skilled trades
  • construction apprentices/cadets
  • ICT
  • Nursing, midwifery and allied health
  • operational commissioning
  • communication and stakeholder engagement.

The Stepping Stone program is currently open to public high schools within the Logan City region. If you would like more information, please contact
