Is GNACOPS a strong force to be reckoned with in private school settings?

The Ghana National Council of private schools (GHACOPS) was established in Ghana to bring under one umbrella private basic and secondary school management, teachers, parents, Educational consultants, GES private school coordinators, and any individual or cooperate bodies interested in private schools operations in Ghana to complement government efforts in providing quality and affordable education delivery in private sector.

Look at 5 unprecedented feats chalked by GNAPCOS in recent times.

1. GNACOPS is collaborating with the University of Education Winneba to run purpose made degree programmes to upscale the qualification of some 200,000 untrained private school teachers across the country to professional degree holders. The institution has designed an intensive three-semester teacher education programme leading to the award of a diploma and a one-year top-up for the award of a degree.

2. On the 3rd of June 2021, the Ghana National Council of private schools and the ministry of Education graduated the first batch of graduates of pre- tertiary education leadership programme. The graduation was graced by the Director for the pre-tertiary directorate at the Ministry of Education, Mr. Richard Baffour Awuah, and some representatives from the National Council , NTC, the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, NaCCA, and other non-governmental organizations.

3. GNAPCOS is working with an allied International agency from China and the United States of America, USA to supply interested private school teachers with portable laptops through their school owners.
