This year’s Youth Month theme Accelerating youth economic emancipation for a sustainable future places the spotlight on the importance of empowering today’s youth with the knowledge and skills to build a sustainable future of tomorrow.

To this end, leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, Schneider Electric has launched two exciting, online courses that will set students on the path to not only succeed in their respective careers but also do so with sustainability and energy transition in mind.

The Schneider Electric Global Student Experience

The Schneider Electric Global Student Experience has been designed to give students a career head start, offering invaluable information with a series of e-learning modules and simulated projects.

Now open for registration till 16 June 2023, it is available to all undergraduates and masters students and offers e-learning modules on careers such as Sales & Marketing, Services, Supply Chain, Digital careers, or Sustainability as a Business.

“Whilst formal learning institutions provide students with valuable knowledge, they often lack the requisite practical, real-life skills training that are essential in the workplace. The Schneider Electric’s Global Student Experience bridges this gap, providing current and practical guidance to hit the road running,” says Modlay Davids, Talent Acquisition & Employer Branding Specialist at Schneider Electric.

Become a Player in the Energy Transition

The second Schneider Electric online course; Become a Player in the Energy Transition has been launched together with the International Trade Centre (ITC), a United Nations (UN) agency, and the French NGO Atelier 21, and is available in English, with other languages to follow.

Encompassing a variety of case studies from rural and urban settings marked by differing levels of development, Become a Player in the Energy Transition also encourages participants to consider professional opportunities in the clean energy sector by directing them to more technical courses on solar power, wind power, and other specialised areas.

“Participation in this initiative compliments and strengthens Schneider Electric’s longstanding dedication to sustainability and youth empowerment. We are committed to providing professional training to one million young people by 2025 and, to date, over 400,000 individuals have already benefitted from the initiative,” says Carina van Zyl, Sustainable Development Specialist at Schneider Electric.
