Mapping and analysis of the needs for petroleum related education in Tanzania
This study maps and analyses the needs for petroleum related education in Tanzania. This study represents an attempt to systematize the needs required at a detailed skills level, indicating gaps in demand and supply. The analysis is structured in a matrix that details skills needs at the professional and technical levels. The matrix is a useful tool that the government and the industry may use to plan for matching demand and supply of skills needed in years to come. Based on the findings, this study provides recommendations as to the type and level of education needed. There are many uncertainties as to the future as to the industry. Hence, the estimates given here have to be treated with caution and are likely to change as future decisions are made on development of the oil and gas sector in Tanzania.
