The Provost, Federal College of Education (Technical), Umunze, Anambra State Prof Josephat Ogbuagu, has stressed the need for continuous training programmes for staff in order to achieve the aims and goals of an organisation. He said the management of FCET Umunze understands the critical importance of building the capacity of academic and non-academic staff that would make them agents of positive change in the institution.
Ogbuagu stated this, while declaring the three-day workshop organised recently for staff of the college. He said the workshop was tailored to expand the knowledge of participants, awaken and refresh them through interactive session and provide a platform for mutual exchange of ideas. He stressed the need for discipline among staff in order to ensure efficient discharge of duties for the growth of the college.
The lead paper presenter, Dr Peter Abdu, former Director Tertiary Education Commission, Abuja, discussed “Discipline In Civil Service,” noting that wrongdoings could attract penalties. He urged staff members of the college to acquaint themselves with the disciplinary procedure and rules of the College.
His words: “It is to secure orderliness and the absence of chaos, irregularity and confusion in the behaviour of the Public Servants that the Public Service rules (PSR) was produced. It is essentially imperative therefore for all officers in the service to know what the expectations are, as well as the penalties when a rule has been violated”.
