Mining Academy

Fostering the future of resources professionals

Carey is a key part of training the next generation of Indigenous resources employees. Carey is working with the Australian Aboriginal Mining Academy and Curtin University to advance education and employment opportunities for First Nations people in the sector. The three organisations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in 2019.

Curtin University, Australian Aboriginal Mining Academy and Carey are working to help inspire the future Indigenous mining workforce and develop pathways into Curtin University.  

The program combines outreach programs, enabling courses and the expertise of Curtin’s Centre for Aboriginal Studies to strengthen and support the education opportunities available for Indigenous people in the Kalgoorlie-Goldfields region.  

Carey has an ongoing commitment to improving the social wellbeing of Aboriginal people and a belief that education is one of the core drivers that provides the pathway to employment opportunity and achieving economic prosperity.  

It forms one of the founding principles behind the establishment of the Australian Aboriginal Mining Academy.   

The program has a solid foundation and will continue to create positive impacts into the future.  

With mining having occurred in this resource rich region for approximately 125 years, and Kalgoorlie home to the WA School of Mines, recognised as one of the most respected and prestigious providers of courses of study for the global mining industry, it was only natural to consider the Goldfields region for the Academy.
