Our Next Gen Leader programme in 2022 attracted over 100 students and graduates to the event. We targeted not universities offering mining degrees (Imperial, Camborne, Dundee) but tangential degrees (geology, business, engineering, health and safety) from the likes of Oxford, Bristol, Leicester, East Anglia, Southampton, St. Andrews and Birkbeck College.
Our mission at Resourcing Tomorrow is to show how mining is an inclusive industry which offers opportunities for everyone. What degree or qualifications you have, whatever your background is, there is a place in the mining industry for you.
