Graduates and Students
A number of graduates are selected each year to participate in an 18-month practical application programme.
Since the programme commenced in 2014, 30 graduates have benefited from the scheme. The programme is structured to provide maximum knowledge transfer and experience to the graduates in their respective disciplines, together with some exposure to the broader aspects of the operation.
To guide and advise them, each graduate is assigned a mentor and receives a personal development plan outlining targets and competencies to be achieved during the programme.
As part of their training, the graduates are required to undertake projects and present the outcomes to management.
On concluding, the graduates receive Certificates of Completion and are equipped with valuable experience that significantly enhances their employment prospects in the mining or other industries.

“I hold a mechanical engineering degree from Moi University and managed to get a place on the graduate trainee programme with Base Titanium in the engineering maintenance department. Such opportunities don’t come along so often. The professional experience I am gathering here will give me an excellent grounding and a distinct advantage in the future employment market.”
