Platform of Opportunity Week 2016

The OPITO Platform of Opportunity Week, run in academic partnership with East Norfolk Sixth Form College, offered those studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects in local schools and colleges, the opportunity to learn more about the range of careers opportunities and routes into the energy sector.

This year the weeklong event took place between the 14th-18th March in Norwich and Great Yarmouth, where GCSE, BTEC Engineering or A Level students took part in a range of interactive activities and formed a new appreciation for the oil and gas industry and how the organisations fit together.

The event also had a Platform Workshop Series on Employability activities from Dexters Recruitment, Louise Lace Fashion Stylist and July14.
