MAKE YOURSELVES RELEVANT TO THE SYSTEM IAUE VC CHARGES CONFIDENTIAL SECRETARIES
Confidential Secretaries and Typists have been charged to make themselves relevant to the university system.
Acting Vice-Chancellor of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Professor Rosemund Dienye Green-Osahogulu gave the charge while declaring open a two day capacity building workshop for confidential secretaries and Typists at the old Lecture Hall of the University.
Represented by the Dean of Humanities, Dr. Kingdom Orji, Professor Rosemund Osahogulu said that the workshop was timely, pointing out that no organization can do without a well articulated investment in the area of capacity building either in the form of training or retraining. She added that these are critical issues in work places that need to be addressed, stressing that medical Doctors and other professionals go for regular refresher courses to update their knowledge. The Vice-Chancellor urged the participants to seek better ways to improve themselves beyond the support provided by the management of the university and open their minds to change.
In his address, the Registrar of the institution, Barrister Ikem Adiele identified poor performance as one of the problems of confidential Secretaries and Typists and remarked that the efficacy of the training can not be over emphasized adding that the participants will benefit immensely from the wealth of experience of the resource persons. He described them as the engine room in any University administration and advised them to ensure that they do not remain the same after the workshop.
While addressing the participants, the University Librarian, Dr. Boma Obi noted that they are formidable force of an organization. She urged them to take the workshop seriously and wished them well with the staff development programme.
Participants were drilled on “Minutes Drafting and Letter Writing” by Chief S.O.P Onyukwu, “Office Management and Record Keeping” by the Registrar of IAUE, Barrister Ikem Adiele and The Use of Excel, Corel Draws and Power Point by Professor Dele Joshua Osahogulu, IAUE ICT Director.
