Galen University will launch final two courses to complete the Diploma Program on Migration Best Practices

Posted: Monday, March 22, 2021. 1:13 pm CST.

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Galen University and the International Organization for Migration, last week, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to launch two courses for the completion of the Diploma Program on Migration Best Practices, which was started by Galen in 2018.

Galen University said in a press release that the Migration Best Practice program consists of five courses “designed to train relevant staff and public servants on migration management and best practices.”

The MOU was signed by Dr. Cynthia Aird, Galen University Provost, and Diana Locke, Belize Head of Office for the International Organization for Migration last week Wednesday, March 17.

These final two courses are Migration and Development Policy in Belize and Migration Data for Policymaking. They will be offered by Galen during this academic year.

Galen already completed the first three courses: “a basic introductory course, a specialized course on Vulnerable Groups of Migrants, and a specialized course on Migration Governance and Policy.”

Ministry of Immigration Chief Executive Officer, Gilroy Middleton, expressed the Ministry’s support for the continued development of his ministry’s staff.

In turn, Galen University said it “is pleased to deliver these courses on behalf of the Ministry of Immigration and that the Diploma Program on Migration Best Practices is critical to the implementation of the National Migration Policy and Galen university looks forward to delivering the program to new cohorts of public servants and staff in the future.”
