Intercom Programming and Manufacturing Company (IPMC) on Friday partnered the management of the Nungua Secondary School (NUNSEC) to begin a training of teachers and students in Information Communication Technology (ICT).
This was in fulfilment of a promise made by the Director of IPMC, Gaurav Sharda, to the school earlier to ensure that each student had trained in ICT before completion.
He said his institute would help NUNSEC in the designing of its ICT laboratory with about 500 CDs containing programming language and other study materials in addition to a free training for 109 instructors who would be ambassadors of the ICT Education and facilitation.
Mr Sharda said an international sponsorship shall be offered to top performing students for higher degree programme, and a low- cost programme offered to all the students.
He said NUNSEC shall also be supported with free software from IPMC, with low- cost of administrative support from India when necessary.
The Director for IPMC said the training programme would take off this month and all the study materials and books were expected to be free of charge.
The Headmistress of the Nungua Senior Secondary School, Mrs Regina Naa Kai Tetteh, expressed appreciation to the IPMC for what she described as a kind gesture, adding that the support would help improve the knowledge of the students in ICT.
She charged the students to avail themselves to make the best of the opportunity and put all the materials given to them to good use.
