The overall aim is to promote the Scottish capability in this sub sector to the main East Africa Oil and Gas operators, EPC contractors and education providers. They are looking for partners to assist in the upskilling of local resources with a particular focus on design, welding and fabrication.

 International Manager Anne Cant says: “This trade mission is an exciting opportunity for D&A College to develop partnerships and pursue opportunities with stakeholders to train local people in the skills required to meet industry demand.”

 D&A College has an existing partnership with PPEA Ltd in Kenya with a proven track record of providing consultancy services. It has helped set up training facilities, identifying equipment and health and safety requirements, culminating in delivery and the necessary accreditation.
