Monday, November 19, 2018

A total of forty-six Gambian judiciary secretaries and typist have been trained on the use of transactional and organisational communication skills organised by The Gambia Judiciary Training and Research Institute in partnership with IC Business Solution.

The two-day training engaged the participants in idea and experience sharing, learning from one another on the use of English language and vocabulary.

Chief executive officer of IC Business Solution Isatou Conateh said this is the third training conducted for the judiciary this year.

She commended their partnership with Gambian judiciary in creating more awareness for judiciary staff especially in the use of communication skills, to equip them with effective and efficient functioning in their daily work.

Madam Conateh said the two sides have also trained some Magistrates and Cadis to equip them in the full delivery of their works as many use English language to deliver judgments.

She said capacity building is key in any institution and should be on going to make staff more professional in their daily work. “Usually, secretaries and typists are overlooked but they are important human resource in any organisation. “I am happy that the Judiciary recognises the value of secretaries and typists in improving their capacity.”

The work of secretaries and typists’ is so transactional hence the Judiciary deems it fitting to collaborate with IC Business to train them towards improving their skills in term of communication and transaction.

President of The Gambia Court of Appeal Justice Awa Bah emphasised the need for frequent training of secretaries and typists of various courts.  She said the training will greatly improve the participants’ vocabulary and communication skills.
