WHAT WE DO
If you are a member of the API, or your company is, it's important to understand what we are doing in the power sector and how you can get involved.
In achieving our mission to develop the future workforce for the Australian power sector, the API’s activities range from inspiring primary school students with teacher-led STEM programs to developing industry professionals with the famous API Summer School.
The API’s activities sit in 7 major portfolios, with a range of different programs within each portfolio.
This Activity Overview document provides an overview of the specific programs and the associated opportunities for staff at API member organisations and students and academics at our universities to get involved. We are working with our members and partner institutions to develop a Member Activity Plan (MAP) that identifies what success looks like for your organisation and defines a plan to make it happen (a MAP to success).
