About

A project to boost Aboriginal employment in the Upper Hunter Valley has resulted in 23 unemployed Aboriginal people gaining jobs in the mining industry. The 12 month project, known as the Upper Hunter Skills Development Centre, kicked off in 2006 with $125,000 in funding from the ADCC. The centre has since built a strong presence in the region. It continues to partner with contractors to place Aboriginal people into traineeships at Coal & Allied sites, into employment with other mining companies and into positionsin mining related industries.
