SPE, Subsea UK kick off energy industry career guidance website

11/12/2014 by Sharon Shahzad


More than 15 teachers from across North East Scotland attended the launch of ‘Inside Industry’ last night, December 10, a new career guidance website for secondary schools and colleges across the UK, targeted specifically towards the energy industry.

Supported by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen Section and Subsea UK, Inside Industry has been developed to provide students with first class industry driven careers information and advice, providing an overview of jobs available and the entry routes to these career options.

Careers guidance, along with maths and science teachers attended the launch event at the Drilling and Advanced Rig Training (DART) Facility in Robert Gordon University’s Riverside East building. SPE says that the teachers received demonstrations of the Inside Industry website and also took part in offshore avatar rides and drilling experiences on the facility’s simulators.

SPE Aberdeen Section chairman Ross Lowdon said: “We are delighted to support the launch of Inside Industry. This is a fantastic tool for the energy industry and will act as a key support and knowledge source for attracting students to a career in this sector.

“It is great to have such a strong turnout from the teaching community, who will in turn be able to encourage students to utilise the Inside Industry resource. Working with schools and the higher education sector is a fundamental part of the SPE Aberdeen Section’s mission and we hope that Inside Industry will prove to be a popular and useful port of reference.”

SPE Aberdeen’s Schools and Career Guidance Committee worked with Inside Industry to co-develop all content including job descriptions, the pre-requisites for each job shown and liaised with companies to get case studies on individuals working within petroleum engineering.

Lowdon continued: “I would like to thank the representatives of SPE Aberdeen’s Schools and Career Guidance Committee, each of whom has invested a huge amount of time and effort into the development of this new resource. I would also like to thank and congratulate Subsea UK and partners involved in the development of Inside Industry.”
