BHP Pilbara Education

The BHP Pilbara Education Partnership between the Department of Education and BHP has been in place since 2005 and is the largest corporate and government partnership undertaken in Western Australia.

The purpose of the partnership is to enhance and add value to education services, and improve education outcomes including provision of increased secondary pathway options.

At Newman Senior High School, the partnership assists students to successfully transition from school to the workforce under the Vocational Education and Training program, and allows the school to deliver a greater breadth and depth of ATAR course offerings locally, under the ATAR program.
