The National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE), with funding from the Carnegie Corporation in New York is organising Phase 2 of the Senior Academic Leadership Training (SALT) programme for Council Members of Universities. The latest workshop which is the second in the series of the SALT Phase 2 training sessions was held at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) Executive Conference Centre, Greenhill, Accra on February 18 – 20, 2016. It was attended by about 30 delegates comprising Council Members from GIMPA and Wisconsin International University College.
The key objectives of the workshop were to equip the Council Members with the tools and skills to enable them better understand and interpret institutional accounts and audits; train Council Members in terms of their legal, administrative, oversight, fiduciary, strategic and generative roles and responsibilities; and to take Council Members through a self-review exercise to enable them to evaluate their performance.
The workshop was chaired by Professor S.N. Woode, former Chairman of the Public Services Commission. It was facilitated by Professor C.N.B. Tagoe, Chairman of the NCTE; Dr. Paul Effah, Project Director of the SALT programme and former Executive Secretary of the NCTE; Professor H.J.A.N Mensa Bonsu, Legon Centr for International Affairs and Diplomacy (LECIAD), University of Ghana; Mrs. Elizabeth Obese, Director of Finance, University of Cape Coast; and Mr. G.F.
