Get Into Resources is a unique careers event designed to showcase the resources industry to secondary school students. Industry professionals volunteer their time to present hands-on, interactive activities which highlight just some of the over 150 different career opportunities available in the resources sector.
The 2020 Get Into Resources Event has been cancelled due to the unforeseen COVID-19 pandemic. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to the event being held next year in 2021. We will inform you of dates as soon as they are confirmed.
Students are organised into small groups of around ten. This allows or the creation of an engaging and personal experience for everyone who attends the day. Students progress through a series of activities from a range of different resource-related disciples to fully immerse them in the opportunities the resources sector offers.
The resource sector offers well paid jobs with great career progression and travel opportunities. By coming along to Get Into Resources with your school, you will be involved in:
- Learning more about resources careers from people who actually do it every day
- Hands-on activities providing an immersive and practical experience
- Finding out about a range of technical, professional and trade roles available (both VET and ATAR pathways)
- Interacting with people who love what they do in the resources industry.
- Making quality contacts for the future.
The resources industry provides a stunningly wide spectrum of rewarding workplace opportunities for professionals, technical and trade workers. Most often, students are unaware of the variety of positions available and the pre-qualifications they need to enable their resources industry career pathway to commence. Get Into Resources had been primarily developed to assist Year 10 students with making informed decisions about their senior school subject selections.
