Work Experience

Work experience opportunities are valuable for pupils, providing them with knowledge, skills and advice

A number of oil & gas companies will take pupils on as part of an organised workplacement scheme - this could be a couple of days or event up to a week. 

Keep an eye out for organised work placements in your local community.  In 2015, OPITO will host further workplacement weeks in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire which include visits to numerous oil & gas organisations where pupils experience the real working world of oil & gas, take part in interactive excercises and netowrk with industry professionals. 

Pupils can contact companies directly for possible opportunities over the summer for example.
