The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has launched its political training institute aimed at ensuring that members are grounded in the ideals of the party.
Ghana Institute of Social Democracy (GISD) has just been launched today to focus mainly on ensuring that party faithfuls understand the principles and ideologies of the NDC.
Some of the programmes that the institute would run include the philosophy of the party, history of the party, history of Ghana, constitutional studies, party management, political communication, leadership skills, elections and electoral systems.
The school for a start will focus more on short courses, workshops and conferences for party members.
All persons interested in learning more about the ideals of social democracy would be entertained as well.
The school is to be registered with the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE).
The school would ensure that party appointees, Members of Parliament (MPs) and executives will all be taken through the principles and philosophies of the party.
The Chairman of the party swore in the Governing Council and various committees including the Institute’s Programmes Committee, Academic Affairs Committee, Administration Committee, Finance Committee, and Estate Committee.
The school in the meantime will start from the conference room of the party’s headquarters.
