After a year of in depth HSE training, applied personal skills training and field experience, we are delighted to announce that Ghana Cohort 2 were successfully commissioned as ‘Field Ready’! last week at the Takoradi Technical University (TTU).
Each student had submitted a portfolio of evidence to their sponsoring company for review, and underwent an in-depth 4 on 1 final interview with a selection of Technical Commissioners. We thank all attending companies for their time and commitment.
Cohort 2 were honoured at a special commissioning ceremony hosted by the TTU, attended by Technical Commissioners, faculty and the Municipal Chief Executive of the EKMA.
Representing the TTU, Vice Chancellor Rev. Professor John Frank Eshun said, “I am delighted to recognise the contribution that Takoradi Technical University, Field Ready and the staff, students and companies present are making to support the Petroleum Commission’s local content initiative.
The achievement of TTU in bringing together high potential students, major industrial companies and the impressive teaching facilities of the Jubilee Technical Training Centre should not be underestimated. Field Ready at TTU offers a model of how we in Ghana can make real our objective of building local capacity, creating the skills we need to thrive as an economy and promoting opportunity for students to be the industrial leaders of tomorrow.
When we look at the second group of students graduating from Field Ready, we can see in them a bright future for our industrial sectors. These young people have been given the knowledge, the technical skills, the industry experience and the employability training that will allow them to thrive in whatever job roles they choose in future.
So to the graduating students this year, I say this. You now have a unique opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the previous cohort and take every opportunity that is available to you. Be open to new challenges, keep learning and be the leaders of the Ghanaian economy that we are all working hard to build.
To finish, I would like to thank Field Ready for their ongoing commitment to supporting local talent development in Ghana and for showing great energy and enthusiasm for their partnership with TTU. It is through partnership that Ghana will thrive and the students we have here today show what great partnership can achieve.”
