Students go for golden careers – Bundaberg
Local students will learn about some golden career opportunities when staff from Evolution Mining’s Mt Rawdon gold mine visit Bundaberg State High School today.
About 20 students from Gin Gin and Bundaberg state high schools will be mentored by Evolution trades people who will help them with some hands-on trade-based activities.
Students will also get the inside running on what it takes to become a tradie from their mentors during the event run by the Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy (QMEA).
“These are great learning experiences for our students who see how their classroom lessons relate to the real world of work,” said Bundaberg State High School Principal Karen McCord
“Being able to talk to the company representatives is also very helpful for students in finding their way forward into careers,” she said.
Evolution Mining’s Mount Rawdon’s People & Culture Manager Penny Johnson says the company appreciates the opportunity to support local students and advise them of the great opportunities available in Queensland’s resources sector, especially locally.
“Our people also love being able to share their stories with the students and mentor them whilst they develop some of the hand-skills and dexterity that are still vital to trade careers,” she said.
