The Ministry of Education (MoE) is leading the next review of Secondary Education Reforms in Ghana to bring about improvements and target these reforms towards achieving government goals in the education sector.
The Ministry of Education (MoE), chaired by Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, convened a planning meeting to examine the development and execution of secondary education reforms for a better outcome.
Review of Secondary Education Reforms -Issues of Interest
The meeting examined the implementation of effective accountability and monitoring systems through Regional Oversight Committees led by the 16 Regional Directors of Education, as well as the completion of the SHS, SHTS, and STEM curricula.
Ghana Education Service (GES), National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA), National Service Scheme (NSS), National Teaching Council (NTC), West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC), and Ghana TVET Service are among the organizations represented.
The conference gave a chance to review current developments, such as the introduction of Professional Learning Community (PLC) sessions at all Senior High Schools (SHS) and Senior High Secondary Technical Schools.
In a similar event, the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment met with Private School Associations as part of an effort to engage stakeholders on the draught secondary school curriculum before its final adoption.
Ghana National Council of Private Schools (GNACOPS), Ghana National Association of Private Schools (GNAPS), Ghana National Association of Pre-Tertiary Schools (GPOINT), and the Private Education Coalition Committee (PECC) are the associations.
The engagement offered a venue for the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) and the Private Schools’ Association to debate and reflect on the design, structure, and contents of the draught curriculum.
Furthermore, the Private School Associations provided essential insights, views, and proposals to the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment to help drive finalization and implementation activities.
The Private Schools’ Associations were informed of the draught curriculum’s contents and applauded NaCCA’s efforts to create a learner-centered curriculum that appropriately educates Ghanaian learners to adapt to the present and future demands of the global knowledge economy.
