INSTITUTE of Brunei Technical Education (IBTE) is holding a two-day retreat from October 22 to 23 at The Empire Hotel and Country Club, Jerudong, attended by its senior management staff.
According to a press release, the retreat is being facilitated by Dr Chin Wei Keh, IBTE’s Director of Technical Education, and Sheikh Lukman bin Sheikh Abdul Hamid, Acting Principal of Mechanical Training Centre.
The two-day IBTE Vision Retreat is aimed at gathering IBTE’s senior management together to discuss and formulate IBTE’s vision, mission and core values in a more open and casual environment.
Also present as the expert and co-facilitator was Dr Marcelino C Galpultos JR, Management Specialist at the SEAMEO VOCTECH.
This retreat is a collaboration between IBTE and the SEAMEO VOCTECH Regional Centre, Brunei Darussalam.
Various activities, including team building sessions and activities on how to formulate effective change management strategies, are planned for the retreat. Some of the activities in the retreat session involve the senior management team brainstorming and providing valuable ideas on how IBTE can come up with a plan and framework to develop the “two network of schools”.
It is hoped that the retreat can be used as a means for IBTE’s senior management team to share and contribute their knowledge and expertise in keeping IBTE in the forefront of its upgrading plan, particularly in making IBTE as a first-choice for secondary-post education as well as continuously staying relevant to the industrial needs.
