Isaac Baafi Sarbeng


In this technological and competitive world, the performance of every organisation depends largely on the quality of their human resource. In addition, the nature of staff development policies and programmes in the organization impact on the organisation’s human resource skills and capabilities. The study assessed staff training and development policies in the University of Cape Coast in building capacity for departments.  Using a cross-sectional survey, two hundred and five faculty members and 52 managers of the University were used in the study. The sampling procedure was simple random sampling technique. Data was analysed using percentages and the chi-square. The findings indicate that the training policy of University is flexible, motivating and prompts innovation. Furthermore, the policy was found to be clear, coherent and complementary. However, there was no consensus on the policy’s fairness, participatory and effectiveness. Although the training policy is not perceived as fair, it has helped in the capacity building of the University and improved staff performance. It is, therefore, suggested that management of the University should provide equal opportunity and access for staff to freely decide and participate in decision making regarding the modalities for selection of staff for training and development.
