Management of Mampong Technical College of Education (MAMTECH) has held a 2-day retreat for Management members and all Heads of Departments and Units in the College. The retreat served as a refresher course as participants were taken through the Harmonised Statutes, Harmonised Conditions of Service, and the Harmonised Scheme of Service.

The retreat also equipped participants with knowledge and core competencies in Quality Assurance in College Management. Participants were taken through areas such as Directive Principles of State Policy concerning College Administration and the role and responsibilities of Management members, Heads of Departments, and Units in ensuring effective and efficient management of the College system.

The facilitators for the retreat were Mr. E. T. Otieku, Deputy Registrar, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, KNUST, and Dr. Paul Kwadwo Addo, Deputy Registrar, Faculty of Educational Studies, KNUST.

Speaking exclusively to the News Desk of the Teacher Education Journal, Principal of the College, Mrs. Doris Boakye-Ansah noted that the Management retreat was essential in building staff capacity as the college prepares to commence the second semester of the academic year.

“All Management members and staff who participated in this training workshop are excited about the opportunity as the facilitators took their time to take them through key rudiments crucial in assisting them in discharging their duties for the wholistic development of the College. I look forward to seeing them put into practice all that they have learned during the 2-day retreat” the Principal added.

One of the facilitators for the retreat who also spoke to the News Desk of the Journal on the sidelines of the retreat, Dr. Paul Kwadwo Addo, Deputy Registrar, Faculty of Educational Studies, KNUST stated that the retreat will help to consolidate the gains made collectively in our institutional reforms into tertiary status.

He further added that “the commitment of Management was great and there was a clear indication on the part of participants’ willingness to implement action plans. Constant improvement is critical. It is always important for management to budget for these programmes. All other staff of the College must also be developed for total quality management”.

The College prides itself as the only all-male College of Education in Ghana, offering a 4-year Bachelor of Education degree in Junior High School Programme.
