With regard to job creation and education in many of the African countries Cambridge Clean Energy (CCE) are currently operating in, there are a number of challenges. In addition to poor economic performance and population growth, we are also experiencing a mismatch in terms of skills. A major reason that employers don’t fill entry-level positions is skill shortages. There are jobs available, but candidates who have relevant skills are lacking. CCE therefore identifies key local hires; develops and trains them on technical, ethical and professional areas based on CCE working practices. CCE has developed a series of technical training programs and office, management, project management, team leadership and skills for office base employees.

CCE Management Programs
CCE has also produced a curriculum that focuses on relevant skills that not only CCE needs but the employee needs to develop and grow a career path. The CCE aim is to develop and retain close to 100% of employees by changing the paradigm of employment in the developing world. Instead of casual day rate labor or basic activity based payment, we have permanent employees who are local employees, identified for their growth ability.

CCE is committed to continuous education for its employees and we have created a career development path with each and every employee and through regular one on one Personal Development Plan (PDP) updates and reviews, detail a learning and development path to the direction the employee wishes to follow. An example of this is a Technician who is about to graduate who feels he could have more to add as a technical sales person as he has the technical knowledge and the will and desire to be in a sales interface and dealing more interactively with the clients. This was developed in the PDP discussion and now the Senior Management is giving advanced training for Sales and Sales activities.

Implementing pedagogies that promote development of soft skills is high on the CCE agenda. A highly qualified technician will advance CCE only so far. By training further in cultural awareness, social skills, organizational skills, planning, review & reflect techniques brings our people to a level far and above the technicians and engineers we experience with the customer and subcontractors alike.

Providing experiential learning opportunities, cross training and allowing everyone, no matter what their primary function is to have access to training. In the field and office based training is given for all, even if it only gives a basic overview it allows all employees to be able to understand and respect what role and conditions the main function of the company is performing.

The CCE Management programs target various sectors including Project Management, Financial, Sales & Marketing, Legal, Cultural Awareness, Country Startup. This way everyone in CCE has a PDP they can follow and tune as the progress along their own career path.

Coaching & Consulting
CCE develops Partnerships with the Certified subcontractors we use. As we understand and acknowledge that cash flow is an issue for local companies, being able to buy materials to complete the work. As CCE have invested so much time, money and effort into these companies, individual agreements are made to support their development through part funding of cash flow, advanced training and further development of their office management skills.

Coaching and consulting in how they manage their finances and work force is given to help steer the management team of the subcontractors to develop and grow at a manageable pace.

CCE also takes the role of convener as well as offering research and policy recommendations to help with customer and utility suppliers. Being the provider of factual data to train and advance the knowledge of the customer and in this case the Utility Provider, to rectify and understand why faults are happening, how to troubleshoot and prevent in future.

Providing greater accessibility to training through learning material, Solar Power Design is one area frequently requested and investment in books and material has been made to further the knowledge base of the team.

CCE has a detailed structure of certification for technical training. This training is open for the customer, subcontractors, employees and additional intake such as university and adult education students.

There is an entrance exam and also a final written and practical exam before certification is given. The usual intake to pass rate is 10:1. This ensures that highly skilled and broadly trained engineers are produced. Annual re-evaluations are conducted to make sure that best practices and trained policies and procedures are being followed as well as updating on new technologies and technical upgrades.

Finances & Investment
CCE runs a sponsorship and financial support program for employees wishing to further their education and develop further relevant skills. This has been invaluable as it is very common that due to financial constraints they are unable to go or if the employer is not willing to give study leave they cannot prepare for exams.

Local development is key to CCE and working with community in a volunteer capacity. An example of this is the work done with the Uganda Rural Development and Training Programme (UrDT), who enable advanced education for rural children who normally would never have the opportunity.

CCE have given lectures on power and alternative energy, completed radio broadcast on the THE KAGADI KIBAALE COMMUNITY RADIO (KKCR 91.7 FM) to an estimated 1 million listeners, discussing power and power saving ideas, general education on electricity.

Working as a free of charge consultant CCE have conducted power use and solar suitability surveys and reports on the campuses of the UrDT schools and universities, training their local staff on power management and techniques as well as solar power installations. Currently CPS are assisting with converting the KKCR radio station to run on solar only so it can be on air 100% of the time and not fluctuating due to power issues.

CCE invests in identification of talent and talent management for those people who were not able to go to university and have no formal qualifications. One clear example of this is the Electronic repair technician currently working in Uganda repairing faulty equipment from the field. Originally a taxi driver, spotted for his fast learning, work ethic, attitude and interest in electrical and electronic technologies. CPS trained his advancement with a yearlong controlled training plan. This enabled staged learning and not overwhelming him with too much data and expectations. We now have a qualified repair technician that is fully competent and capable for all repairs we need.

All CCE Team leaders do ½ day courses in technical and relevant field training to the team every quarter. These are typically on a Saturday morning and have a team building event in the afternoon.

CCE will continue to work closely with the local people in the markets we serve. We believe in training, knowledge transfer and advancement from within. The jobs we create in these markets serve the local communities while also setting a new standard for education, training and quality of service.
