Empowering Managers

A tailored programme for managers in the off-grid energy space, with scholarships available from the UK Department for International Development.

Who have we worked with?

This programme transformed how I work and my relationship with the team. I also have more time to think strategically as the team is taking ownership of tasks and projects and we're able to co-create solutions to the challenges that we face. This has resulted in process improvements, leading to cost saving.

About this programme

A fully virtual programme for off-grid energy sector managers from across Africa, this highly practical programme empowers team leaders with effective tools in key areas like supervision, project management, and team building, as well as strategies to address sector-specific challenges and manage geographically dispersed teams.

The programme combines regular interactive virtual workshops, robust online learning via our online platform and mobile app, and team-based activities, allowing participants to learn valuable knowledge and skills that can be applied to real workplace challenges, benefiting your organisation’s overall performance and impact.

Empowering Managers, implemented by AMI, is a prorgramme of the “Off-Grid Talent Initiative” which aims to support the talent needs of off-grid energy enterprises across Africa, whilst empowering local talent to pursue careers in the energy access sector.

The Off-Grid Talent Initiative is a programme run in partnership with AMI, Shortlist, FCDO, and the Carbon Trust and was funded with UK aid from the UK government. Discounted pricing is available with additional discounts extended to female participants.
