Academic Dean - Sierra Leon

It is difficult work leading an accreditation agency in my part of the world.  Through the ICETE I have fantastic opportunities of enrichment from colleagues who do the same work  I do in other parts of the world.

I studied theology in a small school in the Middle East, and thanks to the accreditation of my degree through an ICETE agency, my studies have been recognised to pursue further studies.
