Working with the Industry Stars of the future
One of the parts of my role that I most enjoy is working with the young people who are, or hope to soon be, taking on roles in the minerals and energy industries.
Our industries will continue to play an important part in Australia and Queensland’s future, helping underpin the quality of life we all enjoy and based on the young people I’ve seen coming through, they are in great hands.
Here at QER we recently hosted trainees from High Risk Solutions who were keen to get a better understanding of how things like safe isolation happen on a real plant. Dave and his team, like QER, are committed to investing in ensuring young people starting out in industry have the skills and the passion not just to work safely, but to be the stars of the future.
Often that passion is sparked at school which is why QER are also enthusiastic sponsors and participants of the Queensland Minerals & Energy Academy (QMEA).
In a few weeks I’ll be participating again in QMEA’s Pit – to – Port program at a number of Gladstone schools. The program gives students insights into the resources industry, some ideas for their future careers and (I hope), a great reason to get their homework done!
