There are a range of significant Federal and State Incentives for traineeships on site which cover training that is usually already being rolled out on underground gold mines by site based trainers. These incentives* include payroll tax exemption for the duration of the qualification as well as other significant incentives.

*subject to variation and approval

We are currently working in partnership with another large gold producer on a traineeship program which includes:

  • Access to traineeships offering nationally recognised programs which attract Federal and State funding
  • A Nationally Recognised Qualification for personnel which validates their skills and knowledge in underground mining.
  • Support to ensure that their onsite trainers run the program (we train the trainers and provide all learning and assessment material)
  • A program which adds value to the site by incorporating the normal induction and ongoing training within the program.
  • Customised and relevant assessment for each unit area.
