BHP and the Commonwealth Department of Education, Skills and Employment have launched a new program supporting advanced apprenticeships, skills and short-course training opportunities targeted to address the specific needs of local workforces and small businesses in regions like the Pilbara.
Australians will be able to reskill, embrace technology and find new jobs through the training opportunities offered by the Future of Work Program, helping them to become part of the workforce of the future. The program will provide opportunities to unemployed, young and Indigenous Australians across Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and New South Wales to develop skills and better access employment.
Eligible students will gain a unique opportunity to have their student contribution fee for their course covered by the Future of Work Program and may also be eligible for assistance relating to other expenses.
