2022 GIR snippet

 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.

For Teachers

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.
