Developing technically competent engineers, technicians and operators

13:30 - 14:30

In this session we examine industry led vocational and technical skills development programmes needed for upstream, midstream and downstream operations. We discuss the employability of graduates from technical training institutions, the importance of globally recognised qualifications and the role staff play in the delivery of training.

Addressing a number of different programmes, we will learn more about:
– The value of apprenticeships and how they are implementable with high quality mentorship programmes
– The need for on-the-job training
– Optimum class sizes to ensure student benefit
– How a company culture can be integrated into training programmes
– How programmes such as the Emirates Foundation ‘Think Science’ and Shell’s ‘Eco-Maration’ promote STEM
– Success rates and alumni destinations
