Mining and Manufacturing Career Awareness Program

The Mining and Manufacturing Career Awareness Program (MAMCAP) is a tailored program to assist in career awareness for the Mining and Manufacturing sectors.

The program is aligned to the Australian Secondary School Curriculum and involves an engaging presentation leading into a hands-on activity to show case the diverse careers and pathways options within the sectors.

TMEC have developed three programs, one each for Mining and Manufacturing, and a combination program incorporating both. The program is designed for years 9 -12 students.

If you’re a student interested in a Mining or Advanced Manufacturing career, talk with your teacher about organising a presentation by the Tasmanian Minerals, Manufacturing and Energy Council (TMEC).
