LAHORE: The Punjab Higher Education Commission (PHEC) has planned to establish state-of-the-art staff development academies in Lahore, Multan and Rawalpindi to provide well-designed, capacity-building training to the teaching faculty of public sector higher education institutions.

This information was shared by Punjab Higher Education Minister Syed Raza Ali Gillani.

He was speaking at a meeting of PHEC on Sunday to review the process of interventions to improve the quality of higher education.

The minister said that provision of all the necessary facilities in the higher education institutions was essential to raise their academic standards.

“Similarly, an institutional mechanism of career counselling should be established to educate the students about choosing future targets,” he added.
