What Is OYP?

OYP is an acronym for OGTAN YOUNG PROFESSIONALS – a human capacity development initiative of the OGTAN UNIVERSITY LIAISON COMMISSION designed to aid Nigerian youths in tertiary institutions gain knowledge of and commence early participation in Oil and Gas Industry career building programs.

There is a dire need for re-education and re-training of many Nigerian graduates today towards specific career development due to the insufficiency of university curriculums to adequately cover skills required for the world of work. Technical competence must be merged with academic qualifications to enhance employability and define career path, hence the need to upskill and re-skill the Nigerian youth to be field ready on graduation.

To this end, the idea of the OGTAN Young Professionals (OYP) was born, being that OGTAN is in the business of building skills for the oil and gas industry. The OYP portal targets tertiary undergraduates of Nigerian universities, polytechnics and other higher institutions who are at their 300 – 500 study levels as well as fresh graduates currently going through their compulsory year of national service with the NYSC.
