Together, BHP and the Department of Education, Skills and Employment have formed the Future of Work Program to promote educational pathways in regional areas and help support Australia’s road to economic recovery.

BHP’s President Minerals Australia, Edgar Basto, said: “The advanced apprenticeships and short courses offered by the Future of Work Program will help develop the workforce of the future. Australians will be able to re-skill, embrace technology and find new jobs in many sectors, not just mining. We are proud to play our part in helping Australian communities on the road to recovery.”

BHP is investing up to $30 million to create 1,000 skills development opportunities through advanced apprenticeships and short courses, designed for students to help prepare regional workforces for the future and support local efforts to overcome economic challenges brought about by COVID-19.
