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.

Geelong Regional Vocational Education Council (GRVEC)
Alcoa 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.
 
With support from the Geelong Manufacturing Council, Alcoa and GRVEC introduced the Alcoa Future Leaders of Industry Scholarship Program in 2006. The 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.
 
The program was also designed to raise the profile of manufacturing and engineering within our region and increase the awareness of career pathways and opportunities within the industry.  Twenty scholarships are available each year as part of the program. Read more about the program here.
