PEM CONSULT supported the Sedat Simavi Industrial & Technical School in Nicosia with a teacher training in Germany in the field of solar technology.

Management and teachers from the Electrical Department of the school, which has the largest number of students and teachers amongst the seven technical VET-Schools in Northern Cyprus, participated in a training programme in Germany in the field of electrical engineering focussing on solar technology.

Strong links with Civil Society Organisations in the electrical engineering sector help to promote solar technology appliances in Northern Cyprus. The teacher training in Germany provided the necessary methodology and technical know-how to apply in the school’s training courses to the students as well as to other electrical teachers from other schools.
