From 21 – 25 November, 20 middle managers from the port communities of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) who are enrolled in the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Management Programme are participating in the final module of the Modern Port Management Course in Abuja, Nigeria.
The module is being delivered by Aylwin Zabula, Associate Information Systems Officer, and a port expert from Valenciaport, together with NPA senior managers who have been certified by TrainForTrade as local trainers. This strategy promotes South-South cooperation, as well as networking and exchange of best practices among member ports of the programme.
The final module of the course examines the capital and human resources of a commercial port, with a focus on how these are interlinked and work hand-in-hand to produce the services that port users expect.
A primary assessment of the case studies developed by the participants will also be conducted. This exercise is in preparation of the final dissertations of the participants in December. Those who have completed the 8 modules of the Modern Port Management course and successfully pass their dissertations will earn UNCTAD’s Modern Port Management Certificate.
From 2-6 May, 20 middle managers from the port communities of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) who are enrolled in the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Management Programme will participate in the 5th of eight training modules.
The module will be delivered by port experts from Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) and Fundación Valenciaport (Valenciaport Foundation), together with NPA senior managers who have been certified by TrainForTrade as local trainers. This strategy promotes South-South cooperation, as well as networking and exchange of best practices among member ports of the programme.
Module 5 of the Modern Port Management Course examines the methods and tools of management, which enables a port to allocate resources, measure performance, and have a specified timeline for delivery. Nigeria is now halfway in the 1st cycle of the Port Management Programme, after joining the English-speaking network in the first quarter of 2015.
After the coaching workshop, which took place in February of this year in Nigeria, the UNCTAD/TrainForTrade course in Modern Port Management will be launched in Abuja, Nigeria, starting with Module 1 on International Trade and Transport. Participants will be middle managers from the Nigerian Ports Authority and the port community. Ms. Anne Hocevar, Project Consultant of TrainForTrade and Mr. Samuel Botchway, Port Expert from Ghana, will contribute to the delivery of the module from 25 to 29 May 2015, alongside local instructors trained during the Coaching Workshop on 3-6 February in Abuja.
