The College of Education Organizes Workshop to Develop Standard Operating Procedure

The College of Education has organized a two-day workshop for Heads of Administrative Units to develop Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) from 22nd – 24th July 2022. The workshop provided an avenue for College Management and Heads of Administrative Units in the College to brainstorm and come up with strategies towards the development of SOPs for the College.

The workshop was attended by Senior Administrative/Professional Staff from various Units/Schools of the College.

Opening the workshop, the Acting College Secretary, Mr. Joseph Oduro Nkansah, indicated that the workshop sought to provide a platform for stakeholders to develop SOPs for their respective Units. He reiterated that if the SOPs are properly developed, it would improve performance and efficiency and ensure high-quality delivery of work at the College and the University as a whole.
