Subsea UK Supporting the Schools Careers Industry Partnership

25 April 2012

As part of Subsea UK’s on-going engagement programme to attract young people into the sector, we are facilitating meaningful collaboration between industry and academia which is essential in the drive to train and mentor qualified people, and address the skills shortage that the subsea sector is currently facing.

This includes working with universities throughout the country to outline the subsea industry and reveal the career options open to students, developing a number of initiatives to work with schools and teaming up with Inside Industry to create a careers tool which promotes the subsea sector career opportunities available school and college students.

A recently held flagship recruitment event for military personnel, which was held in Moray in conjunction with Kinloss Skills Partnership, provided the opportunity for those looking for a career change to learn of the long-term and diverse career opportunities in the fast-growing subsea sector. More than 90 people attended the event when five subsea companies showcased the full spectrum of the sector’s strength, both locally and internationally, as well as outlining the valuable, transferable skills that military personnel possess.

We are hoping for your support for the SCIP programme and attached you will find full details. SCIP© is a collaborative partnership programme designed and delivered by C-T-C (Coaching Training Consultancy Ltd.) operating in secondary schools. The aim of the programme is to develop young people’s skills and confidence and enable them to effectively make the transition between education and employment.

The cost for sponsorship would be £1250 + VAT.

The main delivery of the programme is executed by C-T-C and sponsors are not required to take responsibility of the running of the workshop.

What the Sponsor needs to do:

· Provide two representatives who are happy and comfortable giving presentations and are interested in helping young people

· Give a 20 minute presentation about your organisation, including the variety of jobs involved, the company values or behaviours expected

· Interview pupils 1:1 in small groups and give them feedback on their performance to help them move forward positively

· Be involved and participative throughout the whole day

· There is also the option, if you are willing, to do holiday placements, take apprentices, or tours of your premises etc.

Subsea UK will be holding a series of events in the coming months across the UK from student nights to job fairs aimed at attracting skilled people into the industry. If you would like to be involved with any of these events, please let me know
