CIIG to partner CII (UK) in Continuous Professional Development programmes


President-Chartered Insurance Institute of Ghana (CIIG), Mr. Solomon Lartey, has paid a working visit to the Chartered Insurance Institute of the United Kingdom (CII-UK).

The two giant Insurance institutes are collaborating to provide the Ghanaian Insurance industry with international relevance to the Institute’s new compulsory Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programmes.

This is one of the Institute’s several new initiatives.

Mr. Lartey revealed this at the just-ended Induction Ceremony of new Associates and Fellows of the Institute. In his welcome address, he told the audience:

Our well-researched CPD programmes are designed to ensure that members continue to be proficient and competent in the profession while also furnishing you with essential skills that can help you progress in your career.”

He also made mention of other flagship initiatives including the Management Development Programmes (MDPs) designed to bridge the gap between current executive management and mid-level management to ensure proper succession planning for member-companies.

Mr. Lartey said, going forward, the two sister institutes will embark on exchange programmes wherein practitioners have the opportunity of participating in skill development activities such as internships, workshops and seminars in the two respective countries – i.e., Ghana and the UK. This, he said, is designed to increase knowledge-sharing in the light of new research findings and technological advancements.

The CIIG has announced that it will launch the first of its CPD and MDP programmes in October 2023.
