GHANA ARMED FORCES COMMAND & STAFF COLLEGE
GHANA ARMED FORCES COMMAND & STAFF COLLEGE
About: VISION To project GAFCSC as a Center of Excellence and as one of the leading Staff Colleges in Africa and the rest of the World .MISSION To train selected middle level officers of the Ghana Armed Forces, other security services, and qualified civilians as well as officers of friendly Armed Forces, for middle level policy, command, staff and leadership functions in joint, combined and multi-agency operations. To provide higher engagements, within the national and international environment .The Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College (GAFCSC) was established in 1963 with the mandate to train officers of the Ghana Armed Forces and allied officers of Africa in command and staff responsibilities. Over the years, it has received and trained personnel from sister African nations and has concentrated on core military/defence programmes, leading to the award of Pass Staff College (PSC) certificate. The need for venturing into other programmes that would arm graduates of GAFCSC with the requisite knowledge was necessitated by imperatives of the global system. The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has participated in peace support operations since 1960. It is this imperative that informed the decision to widen the scope of courses run by the GAFCSC. The College therefore sought collaboration with the University of Ghana and GIMPA to run various courses to satisfy the felt need already mentioned above. Having obtained Institutional Accreditation, the College is now poised to run its own courses, while not truncating the collaborative link with the aforementioned institutions. Towards the realization of its new focus and aims, the College embarked upon massive infrastructural expansion. A new complex to house the College has been completed. It has all the facilities needed for running the programmes envisaged including classrooms, administrative offices, an auditorium, audio-visual aid systems, a library (including a laboratory) etc. GAFCSC is noted, as a world class College and a regional training centre, not only in Defence and Military Studies, but also in Governance and Leadership, International Politics, Administration and Management, as well as Crisis and Conflict Management. In this, the College has collaborated with both local and international institutions of higher learning – University of Ghana, Legon, Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Cranfield University (UK), and Bradford University (UK).

UNIVERSITY OF MINES AND TECHNOLOGY
UNIVERSITY OF MINES AND TECHNOLOGY
About: The University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) started as the Tarkwa Technical Institute (TTI) on 3rd November, 1952 but was officially commissioned by the Government of Ghana, more precisely by His Excellency the Governor of the Gold Coast, Sir Charles Noble Arden Clarke, on 7th October, 1953. In 1961, the Government, upon the advocacy of the Ghana Chamber of Mines, redefined the mission of TTI to incorporate the training of mining technicians and other middle level manpower for the country’s mining and related industries. In 1961, it was reorganized to become the Tarkwa School of Mines (TSM) to train the required manpower for the mining and allied industries in Ghana. In 1976, the Government took cognizance of the capability of TSM and its strategic location, Tarkwa, which is at the centre of mining activities in the country. As this location gave TSM a special strength for mining education, TSM was affiliated to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) as a faculty of the University so as to enable TSM offer degree, diploma and certificate programmes in mining and related fields. The name TSM was changed to KNUST School of Mines (KNUSTSM), Tarkwa. The KNUSTSM, Tarkwa and the Kumasi School of Mines were put together to become the Institute of Mining and Mineral Engineering (IMME). In 1988, a University Rationalization Committee (URC), commissioned by the Ministry of Education, recommended the development of the School and its conversion into a University. In 2000, the conversion of KNUSTSM into a University was again strongly recommended by Louis Berger Inc. in association with Kwame Asante and Associates in a report on partial commercialization of KNUST. In 2001, the Council of KNUST considered and approved proposals and recommendations of the Academic Board to merge the School of Mines at Kumasi and the School of Mines at Tarkwa into the Western University College of KNUST, Tarkwa. On 3rd November, 2004, at exactly 11.35hrs GMT, the Parliament of the Republic of Ghana passed the bill on the University of Mines and Technology into an Act of Parliament. On 11th November, 2004, the President of Ghana gave the Presidential Assent and on 12th November, 2004 the University of Mines and Technology, Tarkwa Act 2004 (Act 677) was gazetted and thus, became a law. Vision and Mission Statements Vision The vision of the University is to be a Centre of Excellence in Ghana and Africa for producing world-class professionals in the fields of mining, petroleum, technology and related disciplines. Mission The mission is to provide higher education in mining, petroleum, technology and related disciplines through effective teaching and learning; to promote knowledge through active research and dissemination of information and to offer professional services through extension activities to the mining and allied industries.

GHANA INSTITUTE OF JOURNALISM (GIJ)
GHANA INSTITUTE OF JOURNALISM (GIJ)
About: Studying at GIJ offers numerous advantages. The school attracts lecturers and speakers who are experts in the field as well as students who already work in media and communication. Thus students gain invaluable opportunities to learn from peers and practitioners. The Institute is conveniently located at Ringway, Osu, close to the centre of major businesses and Ministries of Government in Accra. It is a few minutes from the Parliament House, Accra Conference Centre, National Theatre, and main sports stadium, making it easy for students to cover a wide range of events. History The Ghana Institute of Journalism, formerly The Ghana School of Journalism, was officially opened on Monday, 16th October, 1959, by the then Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Mr. Kofi Baako. The school was established by the Kwame Nkrumah government to provide training in journalism toward the development of a patriotic cadre of journalists to play an active role in the emancipation of the African continent. Initially a department of the Accra Technical Institute (now Accra Polytechnic), the school had as its first principal and journalism tutor, Mr. Richard McMillan, then retiring as Director of British Information Services in Ghana. In 1966, the school moved to the present site which used to house the Ghana Press Club. Over the years, the Institute has undergone significant changes, and owes its current tertiary status to the following legislative instruments. 1974 Decree Establishing GIJ In 1974, the National Redemption Council (NRC) passed a legislative instrument (NRCD 275) formally establishing the Ghana Institute of Journalism. The decree set as objects of the Institute the following: a) To train young men and women in the skills and techniques of journalism, mass communication, advertising and public relations. b) To organise classes, lectures, seminars, demonstrations, experiments, researches and practical training in all aspects of journalism and mass communication. For several decades these objectives served as the Institute’s core functions in training and awarding diplomas and certificates in communication studies. 2006 Act Elevating GIJ to Tertiary Status The Parliament of the Fourth Republic and the President enacted the Ghana Institute of Journalism Act, 2006 (Act 717) to transform the Institute into a degree-awarding tertiary institution. Subsequently, the President granted a Charter to enable the Institute award its own degrees, diplomas and certificates for programmes accredited by the National Accreditation Board. This certificate was assented to by the President in August 2006, with a Gazette notification on 1st September 2006. The Ghana Institute of Journalism has now become a fully fledged communication training institution with the status of a university. As public policy demands, the Institute has now been placed under the Ministry of Education, and it is now directly under the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE). GIJ has embraced the responsibilities and challenges presented by its new tertiary status, and continues to fulfil its mission to serve the needs of students, the media industry and society. Administration The Institute is administered by a governing council, an executive management board, the academic board, and other departments, units and committees. Vision To be the preferred communications training institute in Africa, upholding high academic standards and producing world class professionals for the transformation of society. Mission To remain a highly academic professional communications institution serving the needs of students, industry and society.

ADVANCED BUSINESS COLLEGE
ADVANCED BUSINESS COLLEGE
About: The present Advanced Business College (ABC) was formally launched in September 2005 as a Ghana educational institution to admit students to courses leading to certificates, diplomas and degrees. However, ABC was given birth to by an earlier Information Technology (IT) educational institution from which it derives its spiritual strength and inspirational impetus. Both the mother institution, Soft warehouse International Limited, and the present ABC were founded by the same person, Mr Ebenezer K. Ampiah, an entrepreneur and a leading Computer Analyst. The objective of the Soft warehouse International Limited was two-fold; namely, software development and manpower training. Mr Ampiah’s long-term vision was to produce highly qualified middle-level manpower for business and industry in Ghana and the African region as a whole. After running this institution for a while, he realised that although it was adequate for present needs, his objectives were too narrow to help him achieve the more comprehensive educational goals that would benefit his country and its neighbours. His intuition told him that his new, somewhat limited, creation could open up whole new vistas if he moved one step further to widen the scope of the objectives of Soft warehouse International Limited by evolving a connecting superstructure for human resource development. The hallmark of this would be relevance. Relevant human-resource development, in his conception, meant the creation of potentially unlimited but accessible opportunities for training in human development for sectors of the economy. Such a programme required that ICT and other disciplines should be brought together to create a unified educational programme whose output of trained professionals and business students would be relevant to economic development. After a period of careful planning and feasibility studies whose results assured him of the viability of his proposed course, he took the vital step of registering the Advanced Business College as a tertiary educational institution under the Companies Code 1963, Act 179 as a body corporate limited by shares with perpetual succession and a common seal. At this point in the evolution of the institution educational consultants and other planners were requested to prepare the necessary documents for the launch of teaching programmes. After a number of checks and trials, ABC was registered by the Ghana Education Service to run the Advanced Business Certificate Examination (ABCE) in 2006 with registration number GES/GAR/PT/BS/01B/2006. Having run the ABCE programme for a test period, an application was made to the National Accreditation Board (NAB) to start a Bachelor’s degree programme. Applications were made to some universities in the country to be affiliated with. In the end it was decided to affiliate with the University of Education, Winneba (UEW). There were a number of reasons for choosing UEW as ABC’s mentor, but the main reason given by the founding fathers was that the mission of the new college – which is manpower training and development – would be best served by initial association with a university whose objective was the training of teachers and educationists for development. Another reason was that UEW ran all the programmes which the new College planned to teach. The College’s application to NAB was granted in January 2007 with registration number NAB/IAc/000086. It was granted programme accreditation in September 2008. The ABC signed an affiliation instrument with the University of Education, Winneba, in 2008. In addition to the University of Education, Winneba, the College is currently in affiliation with the National Board for Professional and Technician Examination (NABPTEX). Since its inception, the College has earned recognition over the years as a result of its association with a number of internationally recognised institutions. These include the London Centre of Marketing (LCM), the Institute of Commercial Management (ICM), the Association of Business Managers and Administrators (ABMA), the Institute of Professional and Executive Development (IPED), and ACCA. These granted ABC affiliation to run professional courses for their various qualification categories. The College, thus, currently serves as a learning centre for students pursuing programmes with these international bodies. It also collaborates with E-partners in practical business training programmes which prepare ABC graduates for the job market. The College is also in a process of starting, in the immediate future, a joint programme with Texila American University which will train students in nursing and the medical sciences.
