During a recent visit to Ghana, Daniel Palmer and Séamus McGinley from ICDL Africa met with the team of the Ghana- India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT (AITI-KACE), a leading ICDL Accredited Test Centre (ATC) in West Africa.
The centre’s Director General, Dorothy K. Gordon, hosted the meeting. Areas discussed included the deployment of flexible cost-effective ICDL approved learning materials, offering ICDL introductory programmes, and the development of the programme outside of the Greater Accra Region.
An ICDL ATC since late 2005, the centre has led the development of ICDL in Ghana. ICDL Africa is to imminently appoint a local representative to build upon their work and assist with the growth of the programme across Ghana.
Commenting on the visit, Mr McGinley said:
"AITI-KACE have consistently been one of the most progressive ATCs in the region and across Africa. They were among the first to introduce the ICDL Profile concept. They played a leading role in the establishment of an ATC at the United Nations Mission in Liberia, and they continue to play a valuable mentoring role to that centre, with a staff delegation travelling from there to AITI-KACE in May to be trained / certified in the new modules”.
