Capacity Management Centre (CMC) was established in the year 2012. It Originally Started as an Information Technology training centre which delivered specialized training in Database Management, Web Design, I.C.T Skills for Business, Hardware and Networking, Econometric Applications such as: STATA, E-VIEWS®8, LIMPED 10, SPSS, which are all soft wares for Data Analysis.
CMC is also affiliated to the Ghana Christian University College, they are our external examiners and also award our students with their certificates.
In the year 2013, the management of CMC decided to branch into languages precisely English Proficiency for Non English speaking persons, though people with English backgrounds who wanted to polish or do advanced English were equally admitted. That year we registered and admitted our first two students from Benin Republic. CMC since then is able to graduate close to 100 students each year with majority coming from Benin Republic and other countries like Equatorial Guinea, Senegal, Niger, Netherlands, and Cote D’ivoire. Capacity Management Centre has trained over 500 students since its insertion in 2012.
Presently, CMC has only one Office based in Accra-Ghana but we work hand in hand with the Ghana Embassies in the various countries mentioned above for the recruitment of students.
Training and Lessons in CMC are structured in a way to enable students practically apply what they are thought in the classrooms, so as to perfect the language in terms of speaking (articulation) and writing.
We have programs like Seminars, Debates and excursions which help students to be able to apply the Language practically, in communicating and cultural expressions. We also provide in-service training to schools, training for craftsmen and staffs of microfinance companies.
OPPORTUNITIES IN CMC
We have very good relationships with some organisations and schools where after the training, most of our students get the opportunity to work as interns. Eg: Centre for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Ghana Red Cross Society, The Ministry of Agriculture (Animal Husbandry- Amrahia), Teaching opportunities in some J.H.S Schools like Accra Grammar school, Micro Finance Companies, NGOs, etc. CMC also gives opportunities to students to work with the school as interns.
The centre has a rented facility that is very close to the school for our foreign and even local students who live very far away from the centre. The hostel facility is about a five (5) minutes’ walk from the entre.
We also are able to pick our foreign students right from the airport to their hostels.
The total well being of our students is of paramount importance to us. Especially the physical well being of the students. At the moment, we are still trying to work out some sort of a health insurance policy for our students with some local hospitals. However what we normally do is the provision of Health-Care Credit for our students when needed.
SPORTS AND RECREATIONAL FACILITIES
CMC collaborates with the communicty sports centre, which has a state of the art gymnasium, swimming pool, basket ball, lawn tennis and volleyball court, where our students are registered to enable them use these facilites.
SEMINARS AND WORKSHOPS
Seminars, workshops and debates are integral parts of our training. This is where we give opportunities to students to practically use what they have learnt in the classrooms. This helps to sharpen their skills on the usage of the language and also helps boosts their confidence in speaking.
GOVERNMENT AND CORPORATE FOREIGN IMMERSION PROGRAMME
