Training of Trainers for African universities in partnership with TEA-LP

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.
