Has the METF taken over the function of the Chamber Programme?


The Trust Fund grew out of the Chamber of Mines Education Fund but is now a completely separate Fund no longer allied to the Chamber. The METF was constituted by a Trust Deed. A sub-committee represents each of the three disciplines and each participating company is entitled to sub-committee representation. The board provides the policy framework and direction, while the sub-committees implement policies for each of the respective disciplines. Board Members are appointed from amongst the participating companies.
