The Management of the National Schools Inspectorate Authority (NaSIA) formally the National Inspectorate Board (NIB) has called on all private school owners or proprietors to register their schools by February 2021.
NaSIA in a statement copied to Educationweb.com.gh said the registration of private schools in the country is in line with requirements by the newly passed Education Regulatory Bodies Act 2020 (Act 1023).
The registration has become necessary following the passage of the new Education Regulatory Bodies Act 2020 (Act 1023) on August 21, 2020, to control the activities of all regulatory bodies under the Education Ministry.
Part four of the Act which transitions NIB into NaSIA states in Section 98 Subsection 2 and 3 that “A pre-tertiary education institution established before the coming into force of this Act shall within six months of the coming into force of this Act, register with the Authority.”
Also, “a pre-tertiary education institution established after the coming into force of this Act shall, within six months of its establishment, register with the Authority.”.
The National Inspectorate Board (NIB), based on the new Education Act is consequently urging all private school owners (Pre-tertiary Institutions) to register with the Inspectorate Board (NIB) now NaSIA) by February 2021.
