SES HD PLUS ends training programme, creates 10,000 jobs for youth

SES HD PLUS, the premium satellite broadcast service provider, has ended its HD+ Installer Training Programme for the first half of 2023 through which about 10,000 jobs have been created for the youth.

The initiative is in line with the company’s goal to create employ­ment opportunities in Ghana and ensure HD+ users have their HD+ devices and accompanying satellite equipment professionally installed by accredited technicians.

Speaking at the closing cer­emony for this new cohort in Accra on Tuesday, Chief Execu­tive Officer (CEO) of SES HD PLUS, Adelaide Abbiw-Williams, said, “Since SES HD PLUS was launched in Ghana, our desire has not been to only give our subscrib­ers the Feeli Feeli experience of quality high definition television viewing experiences, but to also be at the forefront of accelerating socio-economic growth”.

“Critical to us is the transfer of our knowledge about the latest trends and innovations in satellite TV broadcasting and applying that to develop the skills and knowl­edge of our local partners, satellite technicians and dealers to empow­er local businesses and communi­ties economically,” he said.

Ms Abbiw-Williams said so far the company had trained over 2000 installers in 22 towns across the country since March this year.

That, she said, has brought to a total of about 10,000 installers trained since SES HD PLUS launched the HD+ Service in Ghana.

In addition to the practical job-centred training programmes, she said installers were provided with free dust coats and training materials to enhance their busi­nesses.

A beneficiary of the training programme, Andrews Allottey, thanked HD+ for the opportu­nity.

“It’s tough to make ends meet nowadays, but learning a trade of­fers one a competitive advantage over many. That’s the opportunity and advantage HD+ has given me and countless others through­out this period. We thank HD+ for the critical role they play in Ghana’s socio-economic develop­ment,” he said.

Mr Allotey said for HD+ sub­scribers “I want to assure them that with what we have learnt, their devices will be in capable hands. HD+ has really given us the Feeli Feeli experience, and we will surely pass that on to them,’’ he stated.
