DIRECTOR GENERAL OF GTTI ISAPPOINTED THE NEW SECRETARY GENERAL OF CAPA
The Board of Governors, Management and Staff of the Gambia Technical Training Institute (GTTI) is pleased to announce the appointment of their Director General, Mrs. Jahou S. Faal as the new Secretary General of The Commonwealth Association of Technical Universities and Polytechnics in Africa (CAPA). The appointment of Mrs. Faal came after the recently concluded meeting of CAPA member states held in Nairobi, Kenya which she attended.
CAPA is a Pan-African organization established in March 1977 following a resolution of the 7th Commonwealth Conference of Education Ministers that was held in Accra, Ghana. The Association’s mandate is to provide a dynamic forum for the promotion of ideas and capacity building in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).
The appointment of Mrs. Faal to this executive position is no doubt a clear indication of her proactive nature, fortitude, initiative, commitment and proven leadership abilities and desire to promote technical and vocational education in Africa and the world over.Her appointment was endorsed by the Government of the Republic of The Gambia through the Ministry of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (MoHERST) in consultation with the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs (MoFEA). Mrs. Faal in her new appointment as Secretary General to CAPA is expected to contribute immensely in bringing great transformation to CAPA. She is expected to officially resume duties in early January 2019.
While we congratulate Mrs. Faal on her new appointment, we wish her good luck, success, peace and continued good health.
