Our Story

Prince TC Cohort 2We have 20+ years’ experience in understanding and building relationships between industry, education and government. Field Ready is part of the Getenergy Ltd group of companies established by our founders, Peter Mackenzie Smith and Phil Andrews in 2003.  The group specialises in education, training and workforce localisation for industries in developing nations.

Building on Getenergy’s long-standing relationships in Ghana, Field Ready was launched in 2015 with the Takoradi Technical University. The objective was to prove that companies could access highly employable graduates from a public university.

Having completed the programme, 100% of the Field Ready graduates were employed by major national and international industrial companies. The feedback on our graduates from their employers is outstanding.

The Field Ready Alliance in Ghana now has more than 17 Corporate and National Partners and Associates.

In 2019, the programme was launched in Mozambique in partnership with the Ministry of Science, Technology, Professional, Higher and Technical Education and the national professional education authority, ANEP. It is operated by two institutions – the Industrial and Commercial Institutes in Matola and Nampula. The Alliance is formed of companies in the energy, transport and FMCG sectors.

Field Ready Senegal and Field Ready Nigeria will launch in 2020/2021, with further international expansion planned.

We are working towards achieving 50% female students on every Field Ready programme.
