The Queensland Future Skills (QFS) Partnership is led by BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) and includes TAFE Queensland and CQUniversity as education partners. The partnership has been working with industry experts, community organisations and government since late 2019 to fast-track responsive co-design and delivery of training to support the implementation of autonomous technology in mining.
The Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport has committed funding to support the implementation of pilot programs, to enable existing workers, particularly in regional locations, to acquire new skills. TAFE Queensland and CQUniversity as education partners, are seeking expressions of interest to participate in training, at no cost to participants.
Delivery dates and modes will be dependent on the review and award of EOI applications. Placements will be determined through the QFS Partnership Management Committee.
Microcredentials are non-accredited training programs. Delivery is a blended approach as detailed below:
– A two-hour self-paced online module, delivered via a Learning Management System (CQUniversity or TAFE Queensland).
– A two to three-hour practical or project-based activity.
