The Important Positions
1993 – 1996 : Assistant Director, Nong Khai Provincial NFE Centre
1997 - 1999 : Assistant Director, Sirindhorn Institute for Continuing Education
and Development (SICED) in Nakhon Ratchasima
2000 – 2003 : Director, SICED
2004 – 2007 : Director, Chachoengsao Provincial NFE Centre
2007 - present Director, Chon Buri Provincial NFE Centre
Since my role is directly responsible for administration of both work and personnel as Director of Provincial NFE Centre, I therefore profoundly hope that ASPBAE Basic Leadership Development Course will be enormously fruitful and beneficial to my work in such a way that leadership is now considered an important part of Director’s roles. As being Director of provincial NFE Centre in Chon Buri province, I have to take care of my centre’s staff and also supervise 10 Directors of District NFE Centres within the province. To run my work with various kinds of people and networked organizations concerned successfully is really a hard job. However, it is believed that capacity building in terms of leadership development will greatly contribute to the ultimate success. The holistic qualifications of leadership are not only the leadership itself but also the concept and practices of leadership that cover a wide range of various crucial perspectives.
Currently, the Office of the Non-Formal Education Commission (ONFEC) has been faced with changes like never before due to the education reform in 1999 and the promulgation of 2008 Non-Formal and Informal Education Promotion Act. I indeed believe that ASPBAE Basic Leadership Development Course can ensure my confidence, effectiveness in my organization and in managing changes through real understanding in leadership which requires more than just reading a few articles congruent with what great leaders should be. A vision which I believe is one of the most important characteristic of administrators is also included in the every essence of leadership. It is as well generally believed that good leaders are made not born, many characteristics of which cannot happen naturally, such as beliefs, values, ethnics, character, knowledge and skills. As a Director or as a leader of my organization, I have to get my staff, networked organizations and people concerned to trust me in my capacity to lead which will be of great benefits to my mission in relation with provision of nonformal and informal education in terms of lifelong education for all people nationwide with more effectiveness.
