9780128009758: Education and Training for the Oil and Gas Industry:  Building A Technically Competent Workforce (The Getenergy Guides)

Volume 2 of the Getenergy Guides series explores the challenges of developing a technically competent workforce for the oil and gas sector globally. The cases in this Volume explore practical examples of the efforts of oil and gas companies, contractors, educational institutions and governments to develop competent, vocationally-trained employees for the industry.

Education and training are increasingly viewed as part of the core business of oil and gas companies operating in today’s high cost/high risk environment. This book will highlight the approaches which work and offer a framework against which future initiatives can be measured.

This second book in the Getenergy Guides series explores nine cases studies from around the world and offers commentary on each case drawn from Getenergy’s wealth of experience in uniting education and training providers and the upstream oil and gas industry on a global basis.

    • Edited by Getenergy’s Executive Team which – for more than a decade – has specialised in mapping and connecting the world of education and training with the upstream oil and gas industry through global events and workshops.
    • Detailed research into the key facts surrounding each case with analysis to enable readers to quickly and effectively extract lessons that can be applied to the challenge of building a technically competent workforce.
    • Highlights the aspects of good practice that can be utilised by universities, colleges and training providers in meeting the workforce and skills development needs of the oil and gas industry.
    • Includes full colour images and partnership diagrams’ to underscore key concepts.
    • Offers specific commentary on the replicability, sustainability and impact of the approaches outlined.

This volume considers current standards, identifies models for technical education and training and examines standards and best practice through each stage of the value chain (exploration/ drilling/ production/ decommissioning).

  • Delivers universally accepted occupational standards, a key priority across almost all work sectors and occupational areas
  • Presents case studies that focus on the geographical spread of the oil and gas industry and include specific analysis
  • Provides an excellent transferrable model for education providers and employers across the world, looking to link with each other in a productive or sustainable way

About the Author:

Most of Phil's career has been as an entrepreneur connected to education and training in the upstream oil and gas business. Having graduated from Nottingham University with a degree in politics he was made an Honorary Life Member of the University Union. In 2003, after some travel and a short period working in conferences and publishing, Phil became half of the partnership that founded Getenergy in Aberdeen. He has since been awarded the Livewire Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in London and was runner up in the UK-wide competition. Under Phil's leadership, Getenergy's brand has achieved widespread recognition in the oil and gas and education sectors and more than 40 countries are regularly involved in its meetings, networks and publications. Phil is often asked to speak at international events and is a well-respected international figure in the oil and gas industry who has visited more than 45 countries in support of Getenergy's activities including Iraq, Libya and Equatorial Guinea. His opinion is increasingly sought by ministers and their governments in matters connected to developing sustainable economic value through training and education funded by oil and gas activities.

Jim is a consultant, researcher and writer working in the field of education and skills development. He is founder and managing director of London-based education
consultancy White Loop.
Jim's work over the last 10 years has focused on understanding the dynamic between education and employment, exploring the challenges of how we prepare young people for the twenty-first century and developing new thinking around how education can have real impact on well-being and quality of life. Jim's work is built around a deep understanding of how people learn allied to an ability to engage, analyse and interpret evidence and opinion and produce outputs that are compelling and accessible.
In 2010, Jim was invited to join the board of the Business Leadership Review, an online publication run by the Association of MBA's in London, and is a regular contributor. In 2011, he co-founded Stealth Education, a technology incubator that develops learning technologies and serious games.
In 2011, he was approached by Getenergy to become involved in developing their research and intelligence function. Since then, Jim has assumed the role of Research Director, a position that will see him lead on the authoring of all four of the initial Getenergy Guides volumes.
