Palm oil academy developing leaders for management roles

Youth & Careers

THE New Britain Palm Oil Ltd management training academy aims to nurture and develop leadership competency of staff to become managers in the sections.
Currently 10 cadets from its sites in Poliamba, Higaturu, Milne Bay, Gusap and Gippol in Solomon Islands are undergoing a three-month training exercise at the new institution in Ramu.
NBPOL group training manager Roger Benzie said the cadets would do another nine months of practical training where they would conduct research and write project proposals. These will be presented to a panel which will assess their competency before allowing them to graduate.
“It is the first executive level of training to nurture better managers focused on task, roles and responsibilities. It involves palm oil productions beginning from nursery upkeep, development, harvesting, mill process, motorcycle maintenance, transport logistics and various related tasks as the jack-of-all-trade,” Benzie said.
The academy has a training administration office, two classrooms, library and other facilities.
