GIZ Internal Learning Workshop

From 27 February to 3rd March 2023, the GIZ VET Toolbox Team gathered in Kampala, Uganda, for an internal learning workshop with colleagues from Germany, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda.

Besides an exchange with Lennart Deridder (Team Leader, Economic Growth and Inclusive Green Economy – Delegation of the European Union to Uganda) and James Macbeth Forbes (Country Director GIZ Uganda) on opportunity-driven skills development and VET in the context of European investments, the Team jointly discussed learnings from implementation, shared best practices and planned ahead for the upcoming activities in 2023.

Furthermore, the participants had the opportunity to visit and learn more about the activities of VET Toolbox Uganda, which are supporting efforts of rural electrification through solar-powered mini-grids. The action developed demand-driven innovative training solutions in close partnership with its partners Sendea & AVSI and implements trainings in the field of Operation & Maintenance of solar systems (O&M) and Productive Use of Electricity (PUE) to foster rural electrification and tap employment and income opportunities resulting from increasing investments in the renewable energy sector in Uganda.
