According to the main Coordinator for the programme, Mr. Emmanuel Adinkrah, Systems Administrator, CSUC, the aim was to equip these teachers who represented different schools with knowledge in digital and internet safety tips and opportunities to impact society.

He said the programme was the first of 3-phases of the ‘skilled training’ scheduled for 2019 and noted that the 80 beneficiaries recorded for the first phase is anticipated to yield over 4,000 digital counsellors from their respective communities at the end of the 3-phases.




Excerpt:  CSUC won a grant from Skills Development Fund (SDF) in March, this year, upon submission of a proposal to develop innovative curriculum based on e-learning models and other innovative academic contents for training. This has secured the University College, its first phase of the grant to undertake the above programme, dubbed, iLearn2Teach ‘19 – developing digital counsellors to impact society through certified training series.

SDF is a funding agency that supports public and private institutions based on the window of grants accessible at certain points in time through innovative proposals development.
