Oil & Gas Industry Skills Body

OPITO is the industrys focal point for skills, training and workforce development. It is a self-sustaining, employer and trade union led organisation committed to developing and sustaining a safe, skilled and effective workforce now and in the future. This is achieved by working in collaboration with: industry employers, learning & training providers, education & academia and partnership organisations.
OPITO has been established by businesses and employers in the industry to respond to its demands for a safe and effective workforce in line with its current and future business plans.
The production of oil and gas supports almost half a million jobs in the UK, with 380,000 involved in extraction from the UK continental shelf (UKCS) and up to another 100,000 involved in the export of oilfield goods and services.

A skilled and competent workforce is vital to the health of the UKCS, in terms of ensuring safe operations, sustaining domestic oil and gas production and supporting the export of the knowledge and expertise that has grown up with it.
This business need combined with changes in the way the industry organizes itself through Oil & Gas UK, presented an opportunity to review, refresh and refocus commitment and investment in a number of important business areas including skills and safety.
