Approaches to attraction and retention must adapt to meet future demand

Critical Skills for the Future Resources Sector

At the same time as we seek accelerated development of critical minerals projects and advanced downstream processing, the global investment, regulatory, and societal expectations of mining companies and their workforces are evolving at a rapid pace. The need to simultaneously increase the pipeline of students moving into STEM careers, evolve tertiary curriculums to suit current and future needs, upskill new professionals faster than ever before, and cross-skill technical workforces between disciplines and commodities, is unprecedented.

How can the resources sector evolve our education and training systems to meet these needs and what fundamental changes must we make to ensure a safe and sustainable resources sector well into the future? We must leverage off what we have traditionally done well, but increasingly shift our focus to producing future ready mining professionals…but ready for what?
