We're not a university, but a professional body, JPTS clears air


THE management of Joint Professional Training School, JPTS, has said that it is not a university, but an institution created for diverse professional training in different fields within its coverage space.

They made the clarification in a statement signed by its Public Affairs Officer, Amb. E.E. Williams, and made available to journalists on the backdrop of several reactions coming from different quarters after a document from the National Universities Commission, NUC, said the institution is alien to it. 

Reacting to that letter, Williams who spoke on behalf of JPTS, said: "The attention of the management of the JPTS Institute had been drawn to the fact that certain individuals have a wrong impression about the citadel of learning, thus have also misguided a bulk of others.

It has been learnt that the founding essence and certain aspects of the institution are variously misconstrued, hence the urgent need for clarification. It is therefore the wish of the management to clarify as follows:

"That contrary to what many citizens, who do not clearly know the school, think, the JPTS Institute is never a university, but an institution created for diverse professional training in different fields within its coverage space. That the institution has affiliation with different institutions of higher education that can offer divergent certifications through credits transfer and evaluation.

"That the Healthcare  Management students of the institute, though may not be absorbed for attachment by all healthcare organizations or establishments, enjoy such benefits strategically with a lot of other bodies, just as is the fate of students everywhere.

(This is solely because some students naturally, but unfortunately are unable to adequately and convincingly prove the mettles expected of them by sundry job owners, syndrome not peculiar with JPTS students);

"That the management places high premium on practical experiences for students beyond lecture rooms impartation; That all beneficiaries of the scholarship scheme continue to enjoy the opportunity as scheduled, many of the young awardees are in their secondary schools, and once they obtain their O' Level Result as a requirement for admission, they automatically enroll to the university on scholarship.

"Presently, there are some students who have resumed school while others await their O' Level Results. Kindly note that the JPTS scholarship are in a different dimensions: Some students get Professional Certificate scholarship with JPTS while others get University scholarship which is done abroad.

That generations of beneficiaries are placed in the system according to the strategic arrangements of the management, against challenges natural to all existing systems!"

Furthermore, Williams while making clarification regarding the background and activities of the school, said: "JPTS is an International Organization registered to operate as a Professional Training Organization in the US, UAE, Ghana, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.

JPTS was registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission on the 10th December 2010.
