This project aims to enhance access to high-quality higher education, promote gender equality in STEM, and stimulate the involvement of both women and men in Ghana’s green skills economy. At least 55% of scholars will be women. The curriculum, totaling 120 hours, adopts a hybrid format. Initially, a 30-hours pre-departure train-the-trainer module will be delivered through synchronous and asynchronous methods. Following this, participants will engage in 60 hours of rigorous electric vehicle training in Canada, supplemented by a subsequent 30-hour online component upon their return to Ghana, facilitating the practical application of acquired knowledge.
