Request for Proposals: Energy Transition Career Training Specialist
Student Energy’s Energy Transition Career Training program (ETCT) exists to scale the internship experience by giving students their first opportunity to execute a real-world energy project in data, modeling, policy analysis, or project development. This four-month cohort-based intensive program aims to fill the emerging gap between a large contingent of youth seeking to perform innovative work and transform our energy system but lack access to necessary baseline training and skills required for entry-level roles.
The Energy Transition Career Training is an online energy education and career skills training course aimed at young people between the ages of 18and 30 who are interested in pursuing a career that advances the energy transition. The course will offer a comprehensive introduction to the current energy system, decarbonization pathways, energy economics and governance, as well as some applied skills training related to project management and finance. Currently, Student Energy has several programs (the Leaders Fellowship, Chapters, Greenpreneurs) that help young people develop important skills such as idea generation, strategic planning and project management.
