73 Graduate From GBC Training School

The Ghana Broadcasting Corporation Radio and Television School has held its 6th graduation, in Accra.

The event, which came off last Friday, saw 28 females and 43 males complete an eight-week intensive course in broadcasting techniques and discipline.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Director General of GBC, Major (Rtd) Albert Don Chebe, said the Corporation would soon transform the Radio and Television School into a University College to train more professionals and specialists for the field.

He noted that the GBC has embarked on a series of training programmes for all its divisions.

“In the new GBC that we seek to build, no middle or senior manager, will assume a position of responsibility without undergoing management training”, he hinted.

Major Don Chebe reiterated that management at the higher level calls for wisdom, much knowledge and skills, as well as the ability to supervise the whole spectrum of activities, and “this is what the GBC would require of its staff”.

He said with the imminent migration to Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), GBC would have to reform its programmes to reflect contemporary trends.

Major Don Chebe advised the graduates to live by the ethics of broadcasting and remember their performances in the field be a reflection of the image and reputation of the GBC, and the profession as a whole.

The Head of the Training School, Ms Joyce Anim-Ayeko, indicated the training programmes are open to both professionals and non-professionals, as GBC’s contribution to sanitising the airwaves.
