Ministry of Education, Arts & Culture staff sharpen skills in project management

Four staff members from the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture’s (MoEAC), HIV/Aids Management Unit, completed a Microsoft Project Professional course, through NUST’s Centre for Enterprise Development (CED).

The course introduces participants to advanced project management skills using Microsoft Project Profession 2016 software.

Ben Muleko, the Chief Education Officer in the Ministry’s HIV/Aids Management Unit, said: “I am confident that the knowledge that my team and I acquired during the past week will enable us to execute our tasks more efficiently. One of the main aspects of the course is that it teaches participants to evaluate and monitor the progress of a project, which is very important for employees to execute tasks effectively.”

Lahja Shikulo, a Monitoring and Evaluation Officer in the Unit recommended the course to other civil servants, as well as employees in the private sector. Shikulo added that the course is ‘user-friendly.’

Project management is a growing field used increasingly by businesses of all sizes. Anyone interested in acquiring knowledge and skills during the execution, monitoring, and controlling phases of a project in any sector, is urged to visit the CED website:

CED is a recipient of a Silver Learning Competency Award (2015), from the Microsoft Corporation. The accolade is given to Microsoft Learning Partners who have gained the required expertise and knowledge of its software and products.
