The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder together with Kalgoorlie-Boulder Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KBCCI), representatives from local schools and the Goldfields Esperance Development Commission developed the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Education Charter which was launched earlier this month.
Articulating the importance of lifelong learning for all members of the Kalgoorlie-Boulder community the Charter was launched by the Build the Knowledge Economy Growing Kalgoorlie-Boulder Stakeholder Group at John Paul College.
City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO John Walker said, “All local Primary and Secondary Schools, the Goldfields Education Regional Office, Central Regional TAFE and the West Australian School of Mines have endorsed the Charter, as well as its ethos of ‘learning for life’.”
Mr Walker added, “This collaborate approach to education demonstrates the strength of Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s education and training sector. Strengthen by the various partners and providers willing to come together to support local students, employees and the wider community to learn, develop and grow.”
“Through the Charter, the City and partners also want to facilitate continuous engagement in local education, training and research. This is currently being driven by the Build the Knowledge Economy Stakeholder Group, with partners regularly meeting to discuss and develop local events, resources and initiatives to support Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s world-class education and training offerings.’ Mr Walker concluded.
Local Businesses are being encouraged to sign up to the Education Charter, pledging their commitment to accessing ongoing training, professional development and learning opportunities for both themselves and their staff.
