Job Readiness Training
Job Readiness Training is designed to strengthen students soft skills, introduce the students to technical aspects of clean energy and improve their employability. EnergyLab has partnered with Engineers Without Borders (EWB) to provide four-days of work-readiness training and Sevea to provide two days of technical training. EWB's professional trainers will focus on soft skill development such as self-knowledge, communication skills, time management skills, confidence, motivation, team work and more. Sevea's training will provide students with site visits and exposure to different clean energy technologies.
Work Placement
The shortlisted applicants will be matched according to their skills and interests with the best partner company. The duration of the internship is three months, with monthly mentoring session run by our soft skills training partner EWB. The interns will receive $100 allowance per month (full-time).
Alumni Program
Interns who have finished their placements with the Clean Energy Internship Program will become part of the Engineers Without Borders alumni network. The EWB Alumni network is part of EWB's Professional Skills Development Program, and empowers candidates with valuable experiences to grow personally and professionally in the future. Alumni's will be able to participate in future trainings, events and competitions.
"The interns were of great value for us as they joined the sales and installation teams on the field supporting them and assisting them in sales and installation. This gave them a great experience but gave us the extra man power along with inspiration for our sales staff as they normally don't have university level education."
