The Mining Skills Organisation Pilot (MSOP) was born out of a 2019 Australian Government initiative led by the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE). The Skills Organisations (Skills Organisations – Department of Education, Skills and Employment, Australian Government) were created to explore opportunities to strengthen engagement with the VET sector.

In partnership with the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA), the MSOP was created with the goal of supporting the minerals and resources industries in developing relationships with the VET sector, leading to increased engagement, and understanding of challenges and opportunities for all stakeholders.

Australia’s future workforce will be more geographically distributed and digitally connected than ever before, requiring skills that are adaptable, transferable, and applicable to future needs.

Extensive national industry consultation across 2019 and 2020 led to the MSOP forming four initial project hubs, based on the industry’s immediate need to increase both the capacity and capability of its workforce.
