Delivery of PMP Module 8, Cycle 4 in Ghana

Tema, Ghana (6-10 November  2017)

TrainForTrade, in cooperation with Ghana Ports & Harbours Authority (GPHA) local organising committee, will deliver Module 8 of the Modern Port Management Course from 6 – 10 November 2017 in Tema. 27 middle managers from the port communities of Ghana who are enrolled in the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Management Programme will participate in the course.

The module will be delivered by an Irish port expert and an instructor from the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), with the support of senior managers from GPHA who have been certified by TrainForTrade as local trainers.

The last of the eight training modules focuses on technical management and human resources development.

Ghana is currently undertaking the fourth cycle of the Port Management Programme. Each training cycle lasts 16 to 24 months and comprises 240 hours of in-class training and a final thesis. The deliveries are both led by UNCTAD and international instructors (Irish port experts), as well as local senior managers who have completed the training-of-trainers workshop. This strategy  highlights the uniqueness and strength of the TrainForTrade Port Management Programme in fostering local ownership to reinforce its impact and ensure sustainability. Local ownership of the programme is achieved through a financing scheme that requires the participating ports to provide the majority of the programme’s funds, and by gradually shifting responsibility for implementing the programme from UNCTAD to the participating ports.

So far, the performance rate based on the tests for the first 7 modules is at 77.3% and the satisfaction rate is at 88.1%.
