UCC Team of Assessors Visits Klintaps College

A team of assessors from the University has embarked on an institutional visit to Klintaps College, Tema to evaluate facilities and documents as part of the process for affiliation. The team comprised Dr. Jacob Setorglo, Dr. Philip N. Gorleku and Dr. Samuel Essien-Baidoo from the College of Health and Allied Sciences; Dr. Precious Mattah of the Directorate of Academic Planning and Quality Assurance; Ms. Paulina Kwafoa of the Sam Jonah Library and Mr. Justice Agyenim Boateng of the Institutional Affiliation Office. The visit was aimed at inspecting physical facilities; discuss institutional documents and policies such as statutes, students’ handbook, organogram, Quality Assurance Policy as well as financial plan of the College. Klintaps College is a private tertiary institution which intends to run undergraduate programmes in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Health Information Management, Medical Imaging Sciences and Medical Laboratory when granted accreditation to commence operation. UCC would be mentoring Klintaps until such a time that the institution secures a presidential charter to award its own certificates. After inspection of the physical facilities, the Head of the Institutional Affiliation Office, Mr. Justice Agyenim Boateng, on behalf of the team commended management of the College for putting up the needed infrastructure for academic work and also asked them to restructure some of their documents to conform to UCC standards. He said the College would be granted affiliation by UCC if they implement the recommendations of the team. He further indicated that a team from the National Accreditation Board would do a follow-up visit to confirm the report of UCC before the College is finally granted accreditation to operate.
