CET, in partnership with the University of Queensland (UQ), have been successful in winning an Australia Awards – Africa tender for the provision of a course on ‘Planning, monitoring and implementing extractive investments’ over the period 2019-2022.
The course sponsored by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, will be conducted over two sessions; the first, lasting four weeks, in Australia and the second, lasting three weeks, in Zambia, in co-operation with the University of Zambia and the Copperbelt University.
A total of 25 to 30 participants will be selected among middle career professionals, primarily from government instrumentalities but also industry and NGOs, involved with the resources industry from a variety of Sub-Saharan countries.
UQ will administer the overall program with Professor Guj of the CET co-ordinating the provision of content from all Western Australian sources, primarily from the UWA and Curtin’s Western Australian School of Mines under an agreement between UWA and UQ.
This program will run in parallel with the 2018-2021 Australia Awards – Africa ‘Mineral and energy economics’ course which is currently being managed and conducted by the CET in Johannesburg in partnership with the University of Witwatersrand and later in the year in Perth.
