These are exciting and challenging times as the energy industry prepares to meet Net Zero targets being set by governments worldwide.

At OPITO, we aim to play a critical role in meeting these ambitions by establishing strategic partnerships. Collaboration and cooperation across the energy industry will drive any successful strategic outcomes.

We work with our industry partners, governments and organisations at all levels, nationally and internationally, to deliver on three key aspects: future safety, future skills and greater sustainability, to ensure the voice of the energy industry continues to be heard. We are helping to shape the future of the energy industry, with the skills and safety of our people front and centre. If you have a project that you would like to discuss, please get in touch.

Shaping the future energy workforce development worldwide

Our overarching goal is simple: to ensure that the energy workforce can go to work and come home safely to their families.

It is essential that our workforce has the right training and qualifications to undertake their roles, on and offshore. 

The hard-earned and proven competency available in our offshore oil and gas supply chain and, now, throughout the offshore wind supply chain, provides us with a strong foundation for success to realise a Net Zero future. 

Ensuring a sustainable pipeline of talent also requires us to present energy careers as an attractive proposition for our brightest young people. We need to attract, retain and retrain enough people to meet the workforce demand from the new energy sectors. 

We want to inspire and excite both our current workforce and the young people who will become the next generation of energy workers.
