Private schools told to organize training programmes for teachers
The Coordinator of Private Schools in the Gomoa West District of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Mr Kwesi Coffie, has appealed to private schools authorities to organize regular capacity building workshops for their teachers.
He said regular courses would help their teachers as most of them are untrained.
Mr Coffie made the call at the close of a two-day capacity building workshop for 60 proprietors and teachers from 22 private schools in the Gomoa West District at Apam, at the weekend.
The workshop, organised by the Gomoa West District National Association of Private School (GNAPS), had the theme: “Reading Skills Development” in primary schools.
Mr Coffie said English Language is the medium for understanding every core subject so its teaching and learning in the basic school should be encouraged.
He expressed concern about the poor results of last year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination in the District and urged teachers, parents and school authorities to do their best to reverse the situation.
