TWI has initiated an International Skills Enhancement Programme (ISEP) to enable localised high quality training and skills development in welding, inspection and engineering; in collaboration with industry, government, and other stake holders by providing bespoke engagement models to upskill targeted communities with a specific focus on improving safety standards and promoting economic growth.

ISEP is an exciting opportunity to deliver a programme with international impact, tackle in-country skills shortages and reduce occupational fatalities by bringing engineering-related skills and education to disadvantaged and under-represented groups in various parts of the world.

Training is suitable for individuals seeking to gain employment through upskilling or furthering their career in current employment. Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

What are the benefits?

Access to international expertise and accredited training

Training will be delivered to international standards through a specially selected portfolio of courses that will directly enhance the skills and knowledge of in-country workforces, increasing technical capacity and capability – leading to more safe operators working in industry.

Support with course fees

ISEP provides partial bursaries/subsidies where it delivers its programmes for in-country citizens wishing to pursue a career in Welding, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), Occupational Health and Safety (HSE), Blasting and Painting, and Plant Inspection.
