About 25,470 teachers from various private schools at the appropriate time will be trained at 180 created training centres across the country on the CCP Curriculum, GNACOPS Executive Director, Mr Enoch Gyetuah has said.
The National Executive Director of the Ghana National Council of Private Schools (GNACOPS) speaking at CCP training organised by NaCCA from Monday, 18th – Friday, 22nd January 2021 said these teachers when trained will be certified and authorised to implement the CCP in private schools.
He noted a selection of the certified Master Trainers after the NaCCA CCP training, from the various learning areas would be sent to Asamankese in the Eastern Region to train 450 participants as a simulation exercise to broaden their understanding about the CCP curriculum.
The purpose of the training, which is a prerequisite for every teacher in Ghana both public and private, is to expose the over 200 participants to the National Pre-Tertiary Curriculum Framework (NPCF), The Concept of the Common Core Programme, the National Pre-Tertiary Assessment Framework (NPLAF), Professional Learning Community, Introduction to the CCP Curriculum, Features and use of the Teacher Resource Pack (TRP) and Learner Resource Pack (TRP) in the CCP, Yearly and Termly Scheme of Learning, Lesson Planning Format and Phases of Lesson in CCP Curriculum, Assessment in the CCP Curriculum, Barriers to Learning CCP Curriculum, Use of Creative Pedagogies, Lesson Planning Demonstrations, PLC Simulations, and Fidelity of Implementation.
The need for the training comes after NaCCA developed recently a Common Core Programme (CCP) Curriculum for Basic 7 – Basic 10 (JHS 1 to SHS 1) to be implemented from the 9th Week of the 2021/2022 Academic year in all JHSs.
