Oil & Gas Technical Apprenticeship Programme – OGTAP

OGTAP Recruitment 2022

The 2022 OGTAP recruitment campaign has begun and will run until Friday 25th March at 4.30pm

The demand for these opportunities is usually very high with this year expected to be the same. This is due to the many exciting and diverse opportunities the offshore energy industry offers. OGTAP welcome applications from anyone who meets the entry criteria with an interest in a career in this field.

With the world of energy ever-changing it’s vital that we develop a skilled workforce to deliver a net zero future. Apprentices are set to play a huge role in the future energy workforce and the OGTAP programme provides the fundamental qualifications needed for roles across the energy sector now and in the future.

Managed by OPITO and ECITB on behalf of industry operators and major contractors the scheme is hugely important in creating a sustainable pipeline of skilled and competent technicians.

Since the scheme launched in 1999 more than 2,000 people have completed the four-year apprenticeship across four disciplines: instrument and control, electrical maintenance mechanical maintenance and process operations.  Apprentices gain recognised qualifications, combined with practical training while working alongside OGTAP sponsoring companies.
