After the presentation made by the Ag. Principal, PSCSC students asked questions about the accreditation of programs, mechanisms of feedback to identify the impact made to the society through the products of GIP, the boundaries from which GIP receives students among others.
They were informed that the programs offered by the institution are nationally accredited by supervisory academic bodies such as Workforce Development Authority (WDA) and quality issues monitored through collaboration with sister institutions and higher learning institutions through external moderation. Tracer surveys are conducted to get feedback from the employers of the students who graduated from GIP as well as the students themselves which is very positive until now since most of the graduates are now employed.
