Call for experts to train graduate students in Lesotho, Uganda & Nigeria
13 December 2022 – The Cornerstone of Rural Electrification (CORE) initiative and the Transforming Energy Access Learning Partnership (TEA-LP) are partnering to support graduate-level university trainings on energy access across Sub-Saharan Africa.
CORE is an international initiative initiated by the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE), International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL), UN Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and International Copper Alliance (ICA). CORE is managed by ARE. CORE’s mission is to enable resilient rural and peri-urban communities by ensuring safety, efficiency and reliability become the cornerstone of decentralised electrification.
TEA-LP is a partnership of universities committed to delivering local professionals to drive the transition to sustainable energy access for all. TEA-LP has supported eight universities across Africa to develop new postgraduate curricula, that vary, in discipline and content, across universities, aiming to respond to the market needs of this rapidly growing sector in their respective countries. The new phase of the TEA-LP runs from 2022 until the end of 2025 and will see 20 new universities delivering energy access curricula for Masters’ students across Africa and the Indo Pacific.
In the context of the development of trainings for graduate level students at:
- the National University of Lesotho, CORE is seeking an expert to deliver a “Training of Trainers on Renewable Energy Grid Integration”. The training of trainers should take place in late January 2023.
- the University of Gulu in Uganda, CORE is seeking an expert to deliver a “Training of Trainers on Mini-grid Network Systems”. The training of trainers should take place in late January 2023.
