Energy Club NT has joined the Top End Pathways in Technology (P-TECH) Partnership to help develop the NT Energy industry’s future workforce.
The P-TECH model enables industry, education and community to collaborate to provide students with industry-supported pathways to STEM related qualifications and local employment opportunities.
There are 14 partnerships involved in the Government-funded P-TECH Australia Pilot, and Top End is the only partnership in the Northern Territory.
Top End P-TECH focuses on building Casuarina Senior College students’ STEM and job-ready general skills to prepare them for the jobs of the future in the Energy, and Defence Maritime Sustainment industries.
Energy Club NT joins Norship Marine, Austal, Thales, Royal Australian Navy, Territory Generation and NT Power Water Corporation as an industry partner.
Energy Club NT CEO, Sonia Harvey, says Top End PTECH is a “fantastic opportunity” to connect with local students to promote the extensive career opportunities in the region’s Energy industry.“It’s essential that we engage students early to ensure these career pathways can be explored,” Harvey says. “Providing Territory jobs for Territory students will help to support existing businesses and new opportunities to come as the industry continues to develop in our region. There is no longer the need to leave the Northern Territory to have access to world class, innovative careers in the Energy industry.”
Energy Club NT encourages members to get involved with Top End P-TECH Partnership. If you are interested in working with local students to provide mentoring and create engaging projects, please get in touch via email (email@example.com) to discuss opportunities.To learn more about P-TECH, visit: www.ptech.org.au/topend-p-tech-partnership/.
