Graduates and Students

Graduate Programme

A number of graduates are selected each year to participate in an 18-month practical application programme. It is structured to ensure maximum knowledge transfer and experience to the graduate in his/her discipline and some exposure to related disciplines. Graduates will:

  • be assigned to the department relevant to his/her discipline and complete a rotation through all other departments to increase understanding of whole of mine operations;
  • be assigned to a mentor; and
  • be given a personal development plan that includes relevant workplace projects, training courses and job rotations.

The graduates receive regular feedback and are expected to undergo several assessments based on quarterly presentations, written assignments and practical competency tests.

On successful conclusion of the programme, graduates receive a Certificate of Completion, a valuable enhancement for future employment prospects.

“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.”
