The British Drilling Association (BDA) is pleased to announce the recruitment for its esteemed New Entrant Training Scheme, for the 2024/25 session. This initiative is a significant step towards nurturing the next generation of skilled professionals in the land drilling sector.
About the Scheme
The BDA’s New Entrant Training Scheme is an extensive 18-month Land Drilling Specialist Applied-Skills Programme. It is meticulously designed to transform a company employee, from a Drilling Support Operative, into a competent Lead Driller. The successful completion of this programme leads to the prestigious National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in Land Drilling, Level 2.
The scheme adopts a comprehensive training approach, blending formal off-the-job instruction with supervised on-the-job training at the employer’s site. This dual approach ensures a holistic development of the trainee, covering both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. The programme culminates with an NVQ assessment, marking the trainee’s readiness to take on the role of a Lead Driller.
Invitation for Applications
The BDA encourages organisations to identify potential candidates within their teams who exhibit the passion and aptitude for a drilling career.
