The Ghana National Council of Private Schools (GNACOPS) in collaboration with the National Teaching Council (NTC), have developed a programme under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, dubbed ‘Private School Teachers Continuous Professional Development (PST-CPD).’
It’s under the theme, ‘Preparing Private School Teachers Into The Teaching Profession Through Teacher Competency Training For Quality Teaching and Learning In Ghana.’
This initiative is aimed at preparing and promoting teacher professionalism in the private education sector.
Successful trainees will receive a competency certificate duly recognized by the Ministry of Education and its agencies.
As part of the implementation strategies , NTC is currently training 48 College of Education tutors, at the Atomic Energy Commission in Accra.
The trainees would then be deployed to 24 Learning centers created across the country to deliver the bespoke training modules.
The Ministry of Finance, and for that matter, the government of Ghana through the National Training and Retraining Programme of the Ghana COVID-19 Alleviation and Revitalization of Enterprises and Support (Ghana CARES “OBAATAN PA”) Programme, has decided to absorb all the financial components of this training.
