The Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council has introduced specially designed accredited courses to increase the knowledge and employability of Ghanaians during Covid-19 era.
The Council, a major Commonwealth organisation accredited to the Commonwealth Secretariat and with a mandate by the Commonwealth Heads of Government to promote trade and investment, has outdoored the Advancing Business Education (ABE) designed Commonwealth Home Individual Management Education (CHIME) programme in Accra.
John Apea, Head of Mission for the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council said, “This online programme is a great equalizer because anyone, anywhere, irrespective of their previous qualifications, age, background or employment status, can register, enrol and study.
“It is excellent value for money, and because it is very heavily subsidised, students can study 36 modules and gain accredited UK certificates for only ¢185. This equates to approximately less than ¢6 per module.”
He said the programme is especially important during the uncertain Covid-19 times as it allows all Ghanaians to exponentially increase their employability.
“It increases Ghanaian’s knowledge and skills by earning accredited UK certificates across areas such as project management, business finance, business administration, operational management, customer service and communication,” Mr Apea said.
The Commonwealth is fortunate to have dynamic forward – thinking Ghanaian partners, who recognize the role that education plays in delivering most, if not all, the Social Development Goals (SDGs).
Partners who have made the programme possible in Ghana are the SDG Advisory Unit of the Office of the President, the National Commission for Civic Education, the National Youth Authority, Joy News and Joy FM.
The Commonwealth is a voluntary association of 54 independent and equal countries.
It is home to 2.4 billion people and includes both advanced economies and developing countries.
For the past70 years, the Commonwealth has had a lasting impact on the promotion of peace, equality, democracy, human rights and access to quality education and health.
