Course Cost And Funding Options
20-year-old Lindsay Stevenson moved to Edinburgh to start her Oil and Gas Technical Programme (OGTAP) managed by OPITO in partnership with Edinburgh College. We caught up with her to find out how her apprenticeship was going so far:
‘I chose an apprenticeship for on-the-job training and the opportunity to earn and learn. I’ve formed lots of friendships with my new classmates and in terms of the course itself the practical nature is the best thing.
I hope to work offshore and progress within the oil and gas industry. And, to travel lots when I’m off!’
