Argyle Dimond and Ranger Uranium mine closures.

The Pivot Institute’s L&D Consultants involved with the mine closures have extensive experience working on a wide variety of projects; their multi-disciplinary backgrounds and L&D expertise make them well equipped to paly an integral role in the effective implementation of projects of that scale and importance.

The Pivot Institute has been engaged by Rio Tinto to provide consultancy services and act as a Master Vendor for the implementation of the professional development activities for Life After Argyle (LAA) and My Future Plan (MFP) programs. Both programs impacted approximately 400 employees at each site.

The objective of the LAA and MFP programs was to develop an employee support program which enables and facilitates the effective transition of employees impacted by the closure into future employment, or if preferred alternative enterprise or retirement, at the time of mine closure.

The Pivot Institute’s role was to work closely with individuals, participating in the programs, and offer educational support and advice to identify suitable training solutions; addressing individual employee’s capabilities (including language literacy and numeracy skills), training needs and plans, assessing the feasibility of Career Plans and developing a training pathway (including sourcing and engaging training specialists) to facilitate the achievement of Career Plan objectives.

As a Master Vendor, The Pivot Institute was responsible for the procurement, engagement, management and quality control of training providers engaged in the delivery of training and professional development activities to program participants.
