Petans Grant Schemes

As part of our charitable status we strive to offer the Energy Sector with support to introduce and maintain individuals with the training needed to work offshore. To do this we have introduced two schemes, The Petans New Entrant Grant and The Petans Experienced Workers Grant.

The Petans New Entrant Grant offers financial assistance to individuals and businesses towards the training costs of entering employment in the Maritime, Wind and Oil and Gas industries.

What evidence do I need to apply? - Prior to acceptance onto the course at the reduced rate Petans will require a letter on company, HM Resettlement or Job Centre headed paper.

How will it help me? – If you meet the criteria specified you or your company will be able to apply for financial assistance towards the reduced cost of a training course as specified in the table. Although completing the course will provide you with an industry recognised qualification it does not guarantee work.
