The Honourable Eastern Regional Minister, Mr. Seth Kwame Acheampong has met with the Vice Chancellors, Registrars, Presidents, and top management of tertiary institutions in the region to extend collaboration between the Eastern Regional Co-ordinating Council (ERCC) and the Tertiary Institutions in the region to help develop human capacity and bridge the gap between the academia and the practitioners.
The interface which was aimed at strengthening the relationship between the two parties was expected to give an insight into the Programmes offered in the various institutions and to establish the possibility of getting lecturers as Resource Persons for particular topics for ERCC training programmes; creating opportunities for staff to access short courses on the side of RCC and to offer practical opportunities for students to link theory and practice through internships and special visiting arrangement on the side of the academic intuitions.
In his statement, Hon. Acheampong indicated that ERCC brings to the table, a strong grasp of unique and relevant work experience in diverse areas, including but not limited to Public Administration, Planning (both Spatial and Development), Public Financial Management (including Budgeting, Accounting, Auditing), Human Resource Management, Agriculture, Social Development, Procurement and Contract Management (including Works, Goods & Services, etc) and leadership support and encouraged the institutions to bring their years of experience to bear to ensure total development of the region.
The two-day stakeholder engagement held at the Residency saw the Universities, Colleges of Education, and Health Training institutions making presentations on the programme of studies, and areas of possible collaboration between the institutions and the ERCC. They also offered a platform for knowledge sharing.
Consequently, it was agreed that a committee or secretariat be established with the composition of representatives from the academia and ERCC to facilitate bi-annual meetings which were agreed upon by the two parties.
