The Department of Education, Skills and Employment and the Mining Skills Organisation Pilot are hosting a special livestreamed event that explores the skills, training and future workforce opportunities ahead in the Mining sector.
Australia’s mining industry is at the forefront of industries undergoing rapid and large-scale skills shifts as a result of changing technologies and future global demands. As a result of these changes, the mining workforce of the future will be more diverse, geographically distributed and digitally connected.
To meet the demand for traditional and non-traditional skilled workers grows, employers will be looking for people with skills and capabilities that are adaptable, transferable and relevant to the needs of the sector to build Australia’s economic future. The Mining Skills Organisation Pilot is working with employers, the mining industry and the national VET system to ensure the training structure meets the needs of employers and provides learners with the skills they need for a successful career in the mining sector.
This livestream free event is open to the public and commences at 1-2pm, (AEDT) Friday 13 November, 2020.
