Cameroon: Basic Education - Officials Acquire New Skills

Discussions in a two-day workshop held in Kribi last weekend to better master the road map of the Ministry.

The town of Kribi in the Ocean Division in the South Region was the venue of a two-day training workshop to reinforce the capacities of the personnel of the central and regional services of the Ministry of Basic Education on the mastery of the road map of the Ministry last weekend. Organised by the Ministry of Basic Education in collaboration with the Programme for the modernisation of Cameroon's Administration on Results Based Management (PROMAGAR), the workshop brought together participants from across the country.

It aimed at enabling the participants to understand the road map of the Ministry as prescribed by the Head of State and to improve on their method of work through the fixing of precise objectives and in that way improve on their performance. As specific objectives, the workshop aimed at providing the different officials the tools and methods for improving the follow up and execution of directives contained in the road map of the Ministry. For two days, the participants were drilled on topics such as the road map: a tool for ministerial action, the instruments for the mastery of the execution of the road map and the techniques of the evaluation of the road map.

Speaking during the opening, the Secretary General of the Ministry of Basic Education, Réné Olinga Meke, on behalf of the Minister expressed gratitude to the Prime Minister, Head of Government for putting such an expertise at the disposal of the Ministry of Basic Education. He said the road map is an instruction by the Head of State and called on all to work so that inertia should disappear. He called on the participants to work hard to come out with quality documents which will meet the expectation of the evaluation committee. According to the Secretary General much has already been done concerning the road map of the Ministry notably the constructions of classrooms, latrines as well as numerous projects within the first six months. He added that the Ministry is waiting for the evaluation from the Prime Minister's Office in the days ahead.
