Empowering Minds, Connecting Innovators - Your Gateway to the Future of Education


South Africa stands at a critical juncture in its energy sector, especially with Eskom facing significant challenges. Amidst this, an exciting opportunity has arisen for young South Africans to contribute positively towards a sustainable energy future. The Green Energy Workforce Development Initiative, a collaborative effort between The Education Support Forum (TEDSF), the Sasol Foundation, and National Treasury’s Jobs Fund, aims to harness the potential of South Africa’s youth in driving the green energy revolution.

Bridging the Gap in Green Energy

The initiative is a beacon of hope for the unemployed youth of South Africa, specifically those between the ages of 18 and 35 who hold post-secondary qualifications in engineering or science. It’s a call to action for those based in KwaZulu Natal, Free State, Mpumalanga, Gauteng, or the Northern Cape to step forward and upskill themselves in the increasingly vital field of renewable energy.

Starting on May 30, 2024, this two-year specialised training program promises not only to enhance technical skills but also to increase employability and entrepreneurial opportunities within the green energy sector. With a focus on solar energy and other renewable technologies, the program aims to prepare participants for meaningful roles in shaping South Africa’s energy landscape.

Why Green Energy?

The shift towards renewable energy sources is no longer just an environmental imperative but an economic and social one as well. With Eskom’s current operational difficulties, there has never been a more critical time to foster a robust workforce that can contribute to sustainable energy solutions. This initiative not only helps reduce unemployment among youth but also equips them with the necessary skills to be part of a long-term national solution.
