ENERGY TECH EVENT SERIES 2021 – Education & Training

On the 8 July 2021, Africa Scotland Business Network launched the inaugural ENERGY TECH EVENT SERIES powered by Scottish Development International.

On the 22 July we hosted the 3rd event in the series, Education & Training in Energy .

Scotland has world-class training facilities, expertise and tech resources in the energy education and training field. This webinar will unpack the enormous potential in the energy sector to upskill African workforces in an effort to meet energy demands as well as address the local skills shortage. We introduce you to companies training the African workforce both in person and via technologies such as VR and AI, including Africa Scotland Business Network members SAFER Training and Riott Digital. The panel will demonstrate how they’ve adopted technology in education and training methods as a way to ‘export’ Scotland’s competency in the field using real case studies.
