Title

Oil & Gas Transition Training Fund

2.2

Description of the goods or services required

Scotland is one of the world’s energy hubs, and the sector is a vitally important part of the Scottish Economy, historically accounting for a quarter of all output. History demonstrates that energy investment levels can be cyclical, however to keep pace with our potential, we must continue developing our talent and skills ensuring Scotland has the capacity to deliver the qualified workforce the industry needs.

A significant risk from the recent decline in activity and employment opportunities in the North Sea sector is the loss of human capital. Without skills and knowledge, the sector will be compromised in its ability to efficiently respond to positive market conditions and investment opportunities which will materialise when the oil price begins to recover.

Bids are invited by Skills Development Scotland “SDS” from organisations whose primary focus is delivering sectoral skills activities, to increase availability of transition training courses to support oil and gas individuals affected by the sectors downturn who wish to enter and gain employment in related and alternative sectors.
