TQ has been delivering training services at the Saudi Petroleum Services Polytechnic in Dammam, Saudi Arabia for the last 4 years. We deliver and assess English Language, Key Skills and Technical National Vocational Qualifications to NVQ Level 3 in the Petroleum Industry. The contract involves equipping and the setting up of the Polytechnic’s workshops, providing curriculum and accreditation to international standards and recruiting teaching and support staff to deliver the training and assessment programs, both in the training centre and also to trainees in the field.
Due to the ongoing expansion of SPSP’s programmes, TQ has been awarded a new contract to establish a vocational training college in the north-east of Saudi Arabia at Al Khafji. The new college, which will eventually grow to a capacity of 3,000 students, will offer 2-year Diploma Programs to Saudi High-School graduates leading to vocational certification at City & Guilds Level 3 in a range of specialities including welding, mechanical, pipe-fitting, electronics, and air-conditioning. TQ has been the single training provider at a similar college, Saudi Petroleum Services Polytechnic (SPSP) in Dammam, since 2008. The new college in Al Khafji will be closely modelled on the experience and success of SPSP.
