Workshop: Determining education & training priorities for the Uganda-Tanzania pipeline

10:15 - 13:15

The recently agreed Uganda-Tanzania pipeline will create significant local skilled workforce demands in both countries, especially in technical and artisan skill sets. Already with TVET a major priority for upstream projects in Uganda and Tanzania, more urgency now pursues. In this workshop, we gain insight from the Tanzanian and Ugandan governments, prospective pipeline and EPC companies and local and international education and training institutions on the following topics:

• Estimated labour requirements in Uganda and Tanzania for the construction of the pipeline and a breakdown of which skills will be needed across professional and artisanal areas
• Skills gap analysis of what local skills already exist and where development is needed
• Gap analysis of the capacity of local education institutions to train local workforces
• Capacity of local companies to engage in the supply chain and where investment is needed to raise the competency of the local supply chain
• Identifying education and training priorities for meeting local skills demands and supply chain opportunities
• How the Governments in Uganda and Tanzania are supporting skills and supply chain development
• How prospective EPC and pipeline companies can support skills development and proposed strategies
• Opportunities for bilateral programmes and education partnerships between Uganda and Tanzania
• Opportunities for international education and training partnerships
