CORE Skills is the capability building pillar of CORE, committed to creating and delivering knowledge building programs collaboratively and innovatively. We serve the learning needs of the resources sector through the hub and beyond. It is our mission to build upskilling pathways from today to tomorrow to support professionals and their organisations in the digital age.


CORE Skills leads open access, intensive, multi-stakeholder partnered programs as a means to deliver job relevant, context-rich, original content suitable for a variety of segments including both technical and management upskilling. The CORE community spans the energy, mining and technology supply chains, so CORE Skills can connect and collaborate with partners across traditionally siloed sub-domains, creating truly unique
opportunities to learn from the full scope of the sector.


What does the resources sector need to ensure its workforce is equipped with the skills of tomorrow?

The cornerstones of CORE Skills program design values are

  1. to use problem based active learning;

  2. to be learner-focused building content from first principles

  3. to be job relevant using real-world examples, and

  4. harness the power of collaborative, peer supported and reflective learning practices.

Together these values make our programs effective, allowing participants to achieve deeper learning and better outcomes.

CORE Skills leverages the Community- and Culture- Building context of the CORE Innovation Hub and ecosystem, specifically drawing on entrepreneurship, open innovation, trust, collaboration and speed. 

The vision from CORE Skills is to support the resources and energy sector to power the enterprises of the future. CORE knows that this exciting time comes with inherent challenge: 

how might organisations build capabilities in their teams – the knowledge, skills and experiences necessary to thrive?

We are motivated to increase and release value by growing
capability around live projects.



Together with our industry partners, we are collaboratively co-designing and delivering professional and executive providing an environment that provides leadership in leveraging digital technologies to address industry’s challenges today, and strengthen Australia as a global resources technology innovation hub.
