How big is the problem? The Petroleum Institute and Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) say the industry needs six or seven times the present number of engineering graduates.

Glenelg School will groom its pupils from as young as 10 for engineering, preparing them to go directly to the Petroleum Institute then into jobs at Adnoc.
