Study on skill requirements for the future Energy Training Centre of Saint Louis, Senegal

This is a study project conducted, during the 3rd quarter of 2020, by the partnership of two ACP partner members: Apave (subsidiary in Senegal) and PEC (Pro Educ Consultants) Main objectives: Project to Support the Development of Skills and Youth Entrepreneurship in Promising Sectors (PDCEJ) This training centre will enable the country to respond quickly to the need for qualified human resources, which are essential for their energy sector, linked, mainly, to its ongoing or identified projects for the production of hydrocarbons and LNG. It will also make it possible, in the longer term, to support the developments induced by the industrial use (conversion of power stations to gas) as well as sectoral/individual gas (gas network and infrastructure). The mining industry, highly developed in the country, is also a major consumer of energy and a major employer, could also benefit from the training centre’s ability to develop technical skills.
