Ensuring sustainability & success: The role of international partners in creating a local solution

13:30 - 14:30

International universities, colleges and training institutions play a crucial role in building the capacity of national education and training systems and developing local ownership that ultimately provides a local solution to the skills demands of oil and gas projects.

International operators, service and EPC companies, governments and development partners have an equally important role to play in facilitating and funding these partnerships, and offering their expertise to better align education and training programmes to the needs of industry and the employment market.

Key ingredients of these partnerships are train the trainer programmes, quality assurance processes, curriculum development, technology transfer and learning technologies (especially for technical and vocational skills) and access to field experience and knowledge.

Specifically, this workshop will discuss:

  • Improving access to information on partnership opportunities and the application process
  • How to ensure the sustainability and success of international partnerships by establishing knowledge transfer and local ownership
  • Success factors for international partnerships
  • What governments and industry and local education institutions look for in an international education and training partner?
  • How to optimise international partnerships for business and local workforce outcomes
  • The role of international partnerships in an evolving oil and gas industry
