Rector of Pentecost University College (PUC) Apostle Dr Daniel Walker, has announced that Pentecost University is positioning itself to absorb the new set of free SHS beneficiaries.

He said, the university anticipates the chunk of Senior High School leavers to be produced into the tertiary institutions and that is of essence to adjust and implement policies to meet the job market.

According to him, the institution is expanding its infrastructure towards absorbing the new batch.

Mr. Walker disclosed to Modernghana.com during the outdooring of awards received by the university as the best private communication university in Ghana at the just ended congress organized by the Private University Students Association of Ghana (PUSAG).

He however bemoaned the quality of professionals and technocrats produced annually by Ghana and Africa as a whole but still deeply underdeveloped.

He attributed the “unfortunate development” to lack of mentorship and fear of God.

“As part of ensuring dynamics in the academic system, management of PUC has adopted policies of mentorship and entrepreneurship week to bridge the gap between academia and industry,” Mr. Walker stated.

He added that the country’s educational system should be extended from training the hand and mind to the preparation of the heart.

Mr Walker noted that the entrepreneurship week offers a practical field example for students while it gives back to society.

“As part of the institution’s initiative to change the status quo of Ghanaian education, the entrepreneurship week offers the opportunity to besiege the markets and impact the knowledge and skills acquired on society as Corporate Social Responsibility,” he indicated.

He said the awards will go a long way to boost the school administration and help gain the charter they need to be a full-fledged University.
