Ian Rogers (pictured with students) of Aon Hewitt recently returned from Ghana, having taken part in the joint Worshipful Company of Actuaries (WCA) and IFoA project to support actuarial education in the country.
The project provides volunteer lecturers to deliver sections of the programme for the MSc in Actuarial Science at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. The course is primarily distance learning, with video lectures and face-to-face sessions at weekends.
The WCA and IFoA have been supporting the programme since 2013, and are grateful to the volunteers' employers for meeting a share of the costs. More volunteers are visiting Ghana over the next few months and the project will need more volunteers in future.
