The TTE Technical Training Group has announced a new partnership in Ghana with Tullow Oil to establish a new training centre, and provide technical training advice and guidance aimed at equipping local technicians with knowledge and skills for the oil, gas manufacturing and mining industries.
Tullow Oil, representing the Jubilee Partners and the Takoradi Polytechnic College, have chosen TTE as consultancy partner to advise and specify training equipment, provide and organise the curriculum and then deliver training at the new Jubilee Technical Training Centre (known as the JTTC) at the Takoradi Polytechnic in Ghana.
Two centre coordinators will be provided by Middlesbrough-based TTE, as well as four assessors, who will work on rotation, mentoring the Ghanaian lead trainers and training staff during the contract which will run until 2015.
TTE will set up the JTTC as a satellite centre of its world-class training facilities on Teesside, awarding level 2 NVQ diplomas in electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and process engineering.
Steve Grant, managing director of The TTE Technical Training Group, said: “We are very proud to support the technical development of people in Ghana as it seeks to exploit the huge Jubilee oil field. This is something we have vast experience of around the world over many years.
