PROMOTION OF OIL AND GAS EDUCATION
AND TRAINING PROVIDERS
Whilst the first campaign in 2002 centred on Brazil. The second in 2003 aims to investigate the potential of the Saudi Arabian technical vocational training market.
The results of a study commissioned by Trade Partners UK from Univation (the commercial company of The Robert Gordon University) were launched in Aberdeen, Newcastle and London in March. These seminars were advertised locally and also on the British Council’s Global Education Training and Information Service (GETIS) and were well attended.
The discussion at the workshops focused on how the UK could present a coherent response to the requests made by Aramco and other potential customers for UK participation in the Saudi market; a response that would reflect the capacity of both large and small providers delivering both academic and skills-related products.
In accordance with the wishes of the majority of delegates, a concerted approach by TPUK and the British Council is now being developed in order to maximise the UK's participation in the market.
Please note that the oil & gas directory of education and training providers is in the process of being updated and discussions are ongoing with COGENT about accessibility on line. Further details will be announced when available.
