TWR Technical Training Workshop to boost skills & networking amongst technicians
TWR exists to reach the world for Christ through mass media. Technology plays a central role in making it possible for the organisation to reach millions every year with the Gospel message.
"The Gospel does not change, however, the field of technology is continually changing and TWR wants to correctly position itself in this ever-changing field," said James Burnett, TWR Technical Services Director.
The constant development of knowledge and skills in the technology field is necessary in order for TWR technicians to function effectively in the global environment. TWR is thrilled to testify of God's provision of funds and as a result, the organisation is conducting a Technical Training Workshop in Johannesburg for two weeks (27 August – 7 Sep 2012).
"It's been four years since we last had a workshop like this. Things certainly have changed and we look forward to seeing the results of the training investment. We are hoping that the training will greatly improve the technical skills in Africa," said Burnett.
The training will invest in the skills of the TWR technicians and also create greater networking among technical staff. TWR technicians from Mozambique, Angola, Burundi, Kenya, Cote d'Ivoire, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Swaziland will benefit from the training.
Stuart Gordon, Ministry Support Services Director, said, "The value of the training is not only seen in the hands-on skills that technicians will experience during the two weeks training, but will continue to be enhanced through an online technical forum – crucial for learner support and the transference of learning skills to the workplace."
It is expected that through the workshops, new relationships and networks will be solidified amongst technical staff that will enhance the sharing of information and skills for more effective ministry throughout Africa.
