Training the workforce on renewable energy

28 young individuals who went through an intensive, six-week training programme to become solar system installers received their certificates of completion. Moving towards a green economy creates the need for upskilling and reskilling Kosovo’s [1] labour force to the changing needs of the labour market. In efforts to accelerate green transition, UNDP organized a pilot course for young jobseekers to gain practical skills and knowledge in solar panel installation.
The course participants received their certificates of completion today in a ceremony attended by the parties involved, including Ms. Maria Suokko, UNDP Kosovo [1] Resident Representative, and Mr. Keisuke YAMANAKA, Charge d’Affaires of the Embassy of Japan in Kosovo [1] as well as Mr. Avni Syla, Managing Partner at Elen company that conducted the training.
The training programme provided additional skills and knowledge to the trainees from Vocational Training Centers, who had already completed an electricity installation course and university students interested in internships and careers in the solar installation market.
