About 6240 Junior High School teachers are to end 5 Days Trainer of Trainers for new curriculum named Common Core Programme "CCP" workshop at the University of Ghana on 31st December, 2020.

The Director General of the Ghana Education Service, Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa in a short ceremony at the University of Ghana, opened the 5-Day Trainer of Trainers workshop for the Junior High School Teachers.

The ongoing workshop is being organized by the Ghana Education Service in collaboration with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) at ten (10) centres spread across the country.

The Director General explained that these participants are in turn expected to train over 96,000 teachers in the respective 260 districts.

“But for the CoVID19 pandemic, this training should have been held between April and June, and we’d not have disturbed your Yuletide festivities”, the Director General said.

The Common Core Programme is expected to offer more relevant, more practical and a broader opportunity to students to make informed choices for further education or to enter the world of work.

Prof Opoku-Amankwa indicated that they in the Ghana Education Service must hold themselves in readiness in anticipation of Schools resumption, particularly, as they prepare to role out the CCP curriculum under the National Pre-tertiary Curriculum Framework (NPCF)”.

The Director General further clarified that the Common Core Programme is meant to bring teaching and learning in Ghana up to speed with the new approaches in the fast changing 21st century Education.

According to the Director General the Common Core Programme will run for a four year duration before students would be permitted to select elective subjects they will pursue at the Senior Secondary School level.

He appreciated the participated Teachers for turning up in their numbers at a time when they are expected to be celebrating Christmas with their families”.
