OFFSHORE TRAINING


ENGINEERS FROM OTHER INDUSTRIES CAN SOLVE ENERGY SECTOR SKILLS CHALLENGES


The demand for skilled people to work offshore will see an increase in technicians transferring from other industries, according to The TTE Technical Training Group. Although an increasing


number of companies are investing in


apprenticeships, industry faces an impending skills gap as its ageing workforce nears retirement.


OFFSHORE WIND SECTOR GROWTH


Exacerbated by the growth in the offshore wind sector and the continuing requirements of North Sea oil & gas, the energy sector has an increasing requirement for skilled personnel.


TTE TECHNICAL TRAINING GROUP


The Middlesbrough-based training organisation works closely with industry to provide skilled technicians through its suite of apprenticeships and up-skilling programmes.


With considerable experience working with industry employers, TTE has developed its training provision to meet the ever-changing requirements of different sectors.


TRAINING PROGRAMMES


Its programmes cover disciplines such as mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, process, laboratory technicians, young scientists, warehousing, and building services, with many of the skills and qualifications earned transferable across different sectors, including the oil & gas and offshore renewables.


Recently, the group has worked with organisations including AMEC and Wood

offshore industries’ supply chain are transferable from other sectors. This enables companies to attract a wider pool of workers, which is proving to be more and more vital as potential skills shortages arise.


“Of course, there are some specific skills and competencies required for working offshore, whether it’s in the renewables or hydrocarbon sectors and TTE has developed a range of programmes that
