The Junior Executive Programme in Sustainability is an educational initiative by The Green Spoon Management Consultancies to provide year 2 and 3 undergraduate students the opportunity to engage both in theoretical and hands-on training in sustainability.
The first JEPS is sponsored by the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company -TAQA- and is hosted by Abu Dhabi University.
TAQA is one of Abu Dhabi's flagship companies and as such has an important role to play in helping to deliver the economic strategy of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi University is a higher education institute in the United Arab Emirates with campuses in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Dubai.
The first cohort of the JEPS was held at the Al Ain campus, from February to June 2023, under the full sponsorship of TAQA.
The programme is designed to equip students with the needed theoretical and hands-on knowledge and skills to tackle the sustainability issues of today and tomorrow.
The programme's aims are:
JEPS is structured on three major elements:
5 modules of sustainability training, amounting to a total of 20 hours of course time:
Practical, hands-on, and creative sessions to stimulate out-of-the-box thinking for sustainability implementation.
In-person trips to Taqa's and The Green Spoon's various partners in different sectors and industries to witness sustainability in practice including the landmark sustainability projects of the country.
JEPS will hold monthly seminars where industry leaders share their experiences and challenges of implementing sustainability into the business realm of the UAE.
Each seminar will be followed by an in-person networking session for students to establish connections with the pioneers of sustainability in the country.
Knowledge moves through networks and best practices spread faster among people who share an educational background. The students who successfully complete JEPS are eligible for life-long membership to the JEPS Alumni Network which will entail yearly meetings on progress-tracking, knowledge sharing, and career opportunities.
Application requirements for the programme are:
Students that pass the 1st round of the application will be called for interviews which will determine their eligibility for enrollment in JEPS.
