Skills driving growth in oil and gas

The North East Business Week running from April 22nd to 26th, and now in its third year, will consist of a series of events focussing on a number of key areas relevant to the future business growth and prosperity of the region, such as international opportunities, leadership, entrepreneurship and access to finance.

As part of the „Business Week‟, representatives from five educational and training institutions are inviting organisations to join them in a morning of lively discussion on how they can collectively best respond to the training requirements of the oil and gas sector in the North East.

The five partners include the University of Aberdeen; Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen; Aberdeen College (and its subsidiary oil and gas training company – ASET International Oil & Gas Training Academy); and Banff & Buchan College.

Together their aim is to work with oil and gas sector companies and industry bodies to understand their training needs to ensure that relevant and cost effective training solutions can be delivered by the partner organisations.

Principal Rob Wallen, Aberdeen College said, “With increased investment in North Sea drilling planned over the next three years, which according to analysts could create thousands of new jobs, it‟s vital that we can continue to support the specialist training required by the oil and gas industry. We already have the facilities and expertise here in the North-east, and we are committed to work together to support the industry further by identifying skills gaps and investing in new technology.”
