Career Educators
One of MineralsEd's goals is to spark interest among students in minerals industry careers. MineralsEd career resources have been developed to support of teachers who teach Planning 10 or who wish to integrate a careers component in their mining related science or social studies unit. MineralsEd is also a point of contact for helping find placements for students in work experience or career prep programs.

NEW - In addition to the resources below we'd like to call your attention to the newly established Centre of Training Excellence in Mining (CTEM) and their new BC Career Pathways Guidebook: Mining Careers. This resource was developed to provide counsellors, students and others with an easy-to-use guide to career paths and mineral-industry-related training programs available in BC. It includes pathways according to training level, career profiles, core mining programs and related programs in schools around BC. You may request additional copies through info@MineralsEd.ca.
