The Ghana National Council of Private Schools Saturday commenced the one-month intensive leadership education programme for private school owners in the country seeking school management and leadership skills.
The course is aiming at building professional competencies among all stakeholders in private education delivery for serious house cleaning and total redefining interventions to curtail the growing challenges facing the sector.
Mr Enoch Kwasi Gyetuah, the Executive Director of GNACOPS speaking on behalf of his outfit said participants at the end of the course will know and understand the betterment of establishing a well defined private school.
According to him, private school proprietors after the one month leadership education programme will understand private education operations that focuses on child development holistic and education promotion.
“The leadership education course is to restore and bring the private sector education to the light for public recognition, free from intimidations and seek support for quality-assured education delivery, where stronger collaboration is built among all stakeholders and are seen also as the key team players,” GNACOPS National Executive Director stated.
“GNACOPS is doing this because most institutions and agencies responsible to educate these owners on how to even retain their teachers have rather dwelled on their ignorance to extort a huge sum of money from them in view of helping them to register or meet standards,” he told participants.
Mr Gyetuah furthered that these agencies sometimes put private school owners through some oblique way so that they would not find their way out at the stage of implementing a well defined private educational framework.
