At Exxaro, we strongly believe in powering possibilities by creating opportunities to develop exceptional people. Skills development is vital to our organisation, which is why in 2019, we invested R298 million or 6.52% of our payroll on development training. R103 million went into job-related operational and technical training at business units, R78 million into bursaries, internships and other skills development projects, and the remaining R14 million into management programmes, leadership roles, postgraduate studies and support functions.

Additionally, students benefit from dedicated talent pipeline support and monitoring, access to well-experienced leaders, practical work exposure at one of Exxaro’s operations, invitations to the annual PIT Symposium and Mining Indaba, and consideration for awards for top-performing bursars.
After graduation, our Professionals in Training (PIT) programme provides bursars with further training, preparing them for leadership roles in the company.
The programme’s annual intake comprises 80% former bursars and 20% external candidates. After the 36-month period, participants are assisted in obtaining professional accreditation.
The Minerals Council South Africa has developed the Mining for Schools initiative – an online platform with educational resources for teachers and learners to reinforce, enhance and extend learning about the South African mining industry. Focusing on coal, it sheds light on one of the country’s most valuable resources and its instrumental role in South Africa’s development and industrialisation.
We are a purpose driven organisation with an empowering culture and environment for our employees. We embrace a growth mindset that values diversity, equity, inclusion and collaboration towards sustainable, socio-economic transformation.
