Schools Managers & Accountants acquire skills in financial management and accountability

In a one-day workshop held last Friday in Kigali school Managers and Accountants from schools and companies trained in proper use of funds allocated for the implementation of short-term trainings under NEP in their respective institutions.

More than one hundred school Managers and Accountants from 53 schools and companies singed training agreements with WDA to effectively implement short term trainings under NEP in the 2016/2017 fiscal year.

The one day workshop conducted by instructors from WDA, the Ombudsman office and MIFOTRA aimed at training NEP implementing institutions on procurement procedures, anti corruption mechanism, reporting procedures and preparation of competence reports. 

Abdallah NZABANDORA the Coordinator of NEP in WDA urged school managers and Accountants to increase their accountability levels in managing public funds.

“We expect you to perform at the highest level of management. Public funds are the key to strengthening policies in place”, Nzabandora stressed.

The NEP Coordinator added that the program has already qualified more than 28000 youth and women in TVET related fields. Most of them are now working in different companies across the country.

Participants were also reminded that their schools are important areas for the promotion ‘Made in Rwanda’ campaign, a reason why they need to create a skilled workforce for both local and international labour market. 

Participants expressed how the workshop helped them to work sufficiently. Richard Byiringiro from TSS Buyoga in Rulindo district is one of the participants who said that this session would facilitate him to improve the way they used to manage school property and human resources as well as procurement procedures.  He again said that it would   improve the quality of training.
