Ramp-Up is designed to accelerate the development of the early-career workforce to operate at higher levels of performance and drive front-line productivity in the resources sector.

Attracting and retaining talent combined with overcoming skills gaps and shortages of experienced staff requires a new approach to developing the effectiveness of particularly the early-career workforce.
