Soldiers from the British Army have been working with their Ghanaian Partner Force in Accra to deliver tactical and conceptual training in support of regional stability.
The Ghanaian troops included the Army’s 64th Infantry Battalion and 69th Airborne Force, who currently provide a national security role in Ghana, and wish to expand their capabilities as an expeditionary Task Force.
A British Army Team Commander was quoted as saying:
“As a training team, our overall role is partner-focused capacity building; to provide stability and protection against the emergence of future security threats.
The aspiration is that by developing the skills, abilities and processes of one Partner Force, they will become a credible organisation through which capacity development can be passed on to neighbouring countries, having a greater overall effect within a particular region.
Our relationship with the Partner Force is the keystone to our role; we must understand what they want us to do and why. Having that clear, empathetic approach and being personable gains trust, resulting in mission success.”
