Oil and gas skills requirements are changing at a rapid pace. Digitisation, internationalisation and the transition to a lower carbon future require re-skilling opportunities to be created and new roles to be defined.
Following on from the UKCS Workforce Dynamics Review which was published in May last year, OPITO commissioned RGU’s Oil & Gas Institute to produce a follow-on report to further define the sector’s requirements up to 2025. Action to develop skills is required now to support industry’s Vision 2035 and the wider energy diversification ambition.
The Skills Landscape report provides context for employers, governments, agencies, universities, vocational institutes and training providers to develop the necessary skills and capabilities to support the sector going forward, and will outline a number of actions needed to prepare the workforce for the future.
OPITO is delighted to be working with Oil & Gas UK to launch this vital report at at Business Breakfast which will take place on:
Thursday, May 2nd 2019
07:00 - 09:30 BST
Mercure Aberdeen Ardoe House Hotel, South Deeside Road, Blairs, Aberdeen, AB12 5YP
The event will host a panel of industry professionals who will discuss not only the findings from the report, but more importantly, the actions and next steps that will ensure we have the right skills for the future. Panelists will be announced shortly.
To book tickets for the Business Breakfast please visit the Oil & Gas UK events website.
The report will be available to view online from May 2nd 2019.
