The Ghana National Council of Private Schools (GNACOPS) has announced to organise a stakeholder, proprietors, Headteachers and Administrators meeting on April 22, 2021 to discuss private school teachers licensing.
The meeting follows last year’s decision by the National Teaching Council (NTC) to stop all unlicensed private school teachers from teaching.
Executive Secretary of NTC, Addai Poku in an interview monitored by Educationweb.com.gh said his outfit is collaborating with Heads of private schools to remove all unqualified private school teachers from their payroll.
“So it will soon be impossible for private schools to employ teachers who have not written the compulsory licensure exams”, Christian Poku stated.
GNACOPS as part of an effort to ensure all private school teachers are licensed has scheduled to hold a meeting on Thursday, April 22, 2021, to discuss how pre-tertiary private school teachers can be professionals.
According to the private schools’ council, the stakeholders meeting will take place at Kwabenya Community Secondary School, at 9:00 am on April 22.
Among other topics to be discussed at the meeting are the distribution of laptops to private school teachers, school leadership programme, Education Regulatory Bodies Act, SBC/CCP training, Private school teachers licensing.
