Our Services – People Training

At Shepherd Offshore, we have a strong team focus. We invest in the skills and performance of each of our employees, enabling and encouraging them to achieve learning excellence and competence.

We believe that each of our employees is capable of attaining the highest level of professional achievement. To support this belief, we deliver accessible, engaging, and innovative learning programmes that focus on the development of each employee’s immediate and secondary skill sets.

Investing in your skills

This investment in the development of our teams, together with continual evaluations, helps us to meet our long-term goals as a business.

We want to inspire people to develop their personal skills with us, while attracting and nurturing the leadership talent of the future.

Building a foundation for the future

The demands of the offshore engineering supply chain are growing. To meet these demands, Shepherd Offshore works with local and national training providers and industry to deliver training facilities for technical apprentices in the UK.

In 2012, we established the Energy Academy for Newcastle College, an innovation, training and development centre for the energy sector and in 2014, we completed the development of the Subsea University Training School for Newcastle University. These partnerships continue to deliver a range of construction skills programmes into the market, while our links with local employers and universities give trainees the best chance of securing employment within their chosen industry.

Preparing people for employment

The courses at Newcastle College cover a wide range of disciplines and can lead to careers in manufacturing, mechatronics, electrical and electronic engineering, and mechanical engineering.

A balanced combination of engineering theory and practical hands-on experience ensures that, on completion of one of our courses, students have gained the correct balance of theory and practical experience.
