Five SINU students, sponsored by the Community Benefit Sharing Project (CBSP), are currently completing on the job training with two high profile Projects in Honiara. In a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the organisations, students will be gaining valuable practical experience over the next 6 months as a part of the course program to become qualified Electricians and Plumbers.
The partnership which commenced in 2021, has allowed 14 students from the Tina River catchment communities gain new skills and training in a trade of their choice through the Community Benefit Sharing Project (CBSP). Students were identified and selected after attending the CBSP’s Pre-Employment Training (PET) which continues to be made available to eligible members of the Tina communities. PET training and the SINU initiative are in place to up-skill, equip and prepare locals for employment opportunities during the Project’s building and operational phases.
