As part of the Deutsch-Türkischen Partnerschaft für berufliche Qualifizierung [German-Turkish Partnership for Vocational Qualification], which comprises a total of eleven sub-areas, DGS Berlin BRB (DGS) has developed course curricula, training materials and practical exercises for the areas of photovoltaics and solar thermal energy. The new courses are aimed primarily at both female and male migrants from Syria who are currently living in Turkey. One of the most urgent problems faced by these people is unemployment and a difficult integration into the host society. In order to economically stabilise both their stay there and a future return to their home country, sequa gGmbH has worked with the German Business Membership Organisations (BMO) to launch a vocational qualification program. In order to make these measures sustainable, language courses and courses for social integration are first offered, followed by further vocational training. The successes and placement rate of participants from already completed courses, in construction for example, are encouraging.

Also eligible to participate are unemployed or unskilled Turks from the host regions. This measure ensures that the high number and the often prolonged stay of refugees in the host regions does not lead to social tensions.

Four course modules were designed: Basic knowledge, grid-connected photovoltaic systems, stand-alone photovoltaic systems with solar-powered water pumps and solar thermal systems. Initially, the Train the Trainer courses developed by DGS LV Berlin BRB were conducted in Istanbul, one of the two pilot regions. The qualified DGS experts encountered highly motivated individuals who already had a basic knowledge of the respective subject areas. This knowledge has been further developed and educational exercises were carried out to enable them to be able to put themselves in the difficult situation of the future students and to convey complex content in an easily understandable way.

Outlook

The trained instructors will complete six courses, each with up to 20 participants, by 31 March 2019. Following completion of the project, the entire training centre will be handed over to the ownership of the Turkish project partners, who will continue to run the courses in the future. More men and women are being trained in this promising technology in order to increase their chances on the labour market, to generate their own income and to play a part in developing a sustainable, renewable and clean energy supply in the respective countries.
