Cape Coast, July 30, GNA – Professor George K.
T. Oduro, the Pro Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), has
appealed to stakeholders to re-brand the Institute for Educational Planning and
Administration (IEPA).

He said this would help it effectively
contribute to the governance and educational administrative work of the
country.

The re-branding, he said was necessary to
ensure that the Institute continued to churn out graduates with outstanding
leadership qualities for quality organisational work.

Professor Oduro said this at the opening of
the maiden IEPA Almuni homecoming conference of UCC on Friday.

The two day conference which was held under
the theme: “Improving educational administration in Ghana: the role of
IEPA graduate”, offered stakeholders the opportunity to deliberate on an
array of issues concerning education administration in Ghana.

Prof Oduro said the IEPA must not lose its
focus on training graduates who possessed the ability to coordinate the
internal practices of the educational sector with emphasis on quality
leadership.

He implored the Alumni to get involved in the
transformative process by expanding their tentacles to make general public
understand the uniqueness of educational administration.

Professor Oduro said interference in the
administrative work of the education sector had put leaders of some
institutions into complex situations which made it difficult for them to
effectively discharge their duties.

Dr Augustine Tawiah, Deputy Ranking Member of
the Education Committee in Parliament, called for the institution of licensing
requirements for educational administrators as it was being planned for
teachers.

He also called for the establishment of an
institute for educational leadership and development at the universities preparing
educational administrators.

He said this would equip them with the
essential leadership skills needed to effectively manage the schools.
