Taken together, construction and mining make up Australia’s largest industry cluster, and they play a key role in our future wealth and prosperity. Emerging technologies such as building information modelling (BIM) and automation are changing the way we work, and Australia’s construction and mining organisations need a ‘future fit’ workforce to keep pace. This is a huge industry, and you’ll be amazed at the career choices available to you.
Construction and mining play an important part in the Australian economy, with businesses of all sizes operating throughout the country, including some in our most remote outposts. Skilled professionals are employed to build our houses, construct our roads and extract raw materials for our domestic and export markets. Many gained their practical skills through ‘real life’ vocational education and training (VET) courses.
