Tomorrow's Workforce and Leaders
 
Our focus on workplace readiness skills for adults, engaging young learners in science, maths, engineering and technology studies and driving increased diversity, is helping foster the leaders of tomorrow.  Rapid structural changes in the economy mean that future jobs will require a set of upgraded skills.
 
Anglesea Primary School
Alcoa's long standing partnership with Anglesea Primary School has helped the school achieve some of its aims.
 
Alcoa Anglesea supports the Primary School in its aim to give its children the best academic and emotional start to their education to build resilience in these children and produce an active and contributing next generation for the town.
 
An example of where Alcoa Anglesea has supported the school is the student Wellbeing Program which aims to identify and assist “at-risk” children to enable them to achieve the best learning and life outcomes they can. The Program will help to continue and grow a vital and respected community resource (the school and its children) for the local community.
 
Alcoa Anglesea also assisted Anglesea Primary School to be more waste wise by providing recycling bins to the school. At the same time, the plant has helped the school cut costs that allows it to sustain its waste minimisation efforts into the future by developing a waste collection system that is similar to that used with great success at the Anglesea plant. Alcoa Anglesea also collects recyclable waste from the school for processing to assist with the ongoing costs of the recycling program.

Geelong Regional Vocational Education Council (GRVEC)
Alcoa Anglesea and Point Henry and the Geelong Regional Vocational Educational Council formed a partnership in 1999 to provide local students interested in the manufacturing industry with training, scholarship and work placement opportunities.
 
The Alcoa/GRVEC partnership supports the implementation of the Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) program in the Geelong region as well as the Alcoa Future Leaders of Industry Scholarships in Manufacturing program.
 
With support from the Geelong Manufacturing Council, Alcoa and GRVEC introduced the Alcoa Future Leaders of Industry Program in 2006. The Alcoa Future Leaders of Industry Program aims to encourage young people to consider a career path in manufacturing and to follow a study path that will make them eligible for job selection.
