Country Workshop: Assessing public and private training routes for local skills development in Mozambique

14:30 - 17:15

The next 12 months promises another milestone for Mozambique’s oil/gas industry, with FID expected for Eni’s FLNG Coral Project and progress accelerates for Eni’s Area 4 and Anadarko’s Area 1 Rovuma basin projects. Sasol also recently announced plans to spend $1.4 billion to increase capacity of its processing facility and increase production from its Temane and Pande gas fields. The deadline, therefore, moves ever closer for delivering skilled local workforces and building the capacity of local universities and training centres in alignment with industry standards and skills requirements.

In the North of Mozambique, plans by Eni, Anadarko and joint venture partners to create new training centres to train local technicians, artisans and operators waits confirmation. Within the public education system, the partnership between Anadarko and Universidade Eduardo Mondlane is flourishing with its Petroleum Engineering Masters programme. In this workshop, we focus on the value of both public and private training routes, exploring the following:

• Capacity of the national education system to train a local workforce, and how much investment is needed to bring it up to capacity
• The challenge of sustainability for private training centres, and whether alternative options can be found through local universities and colleges
• How the government, industry, education, training and development community can work more effectively together to develop local skills and a capable supply chain
• Strategies to attract, train and retain teaching talent
• Partnership opportunities for international education and training institutions for both public and private training centres
• Best practice for remote community outreach in the north of Mozambique to engage them in training programmes
• Importance of investment into primary and secondary education to overcome entry barriers to training programmes
