To ensure that trainees hone their acquired skill, we have established the Growth Support Plan, an after support platform for the graduates at no extra cost. Through the GSP, they receive constant support, internship opportunities, on-site engagements, opportunities for grants, fellowships, access to expert coaching to qualify for grants and advisory from professionals to help them start and grow their businesses and be employable in a solar company.
The Growth Support Plan is an action program of Solar Up Nigeria – RETTI’s Coporate Social Initiative working to train, groom and mentor individuals at no cost to be efficient solar entrepreneurs equipped to provide sustainable solutions to energy demands in their communities or serve as a competent pool of workforce for the renewable energy industry. An action which will boost Nigeria’s economic development through the creation of jobs and increased access to affordable electricity.
ADDITIONALLY, we recently secured an amazing partnership with the RENEWABLE ENERGY ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA (REAN), Nigeria’s foremost recognized association for renewable energy practicioners. our trained alumni get a 70 percent discount to join the association. They have included a portal for all RETTI students. Check the portal HERE
