The Ghana Education Service (GES) has denied that it was charging teachers GHc60 for the training on the New Standard-Based Curriculum for Kindergarten (KG) and Primary (P) School teachers.

It has therefore asked the teachers to treat the rumor with contempt and go ahead to participate in the on-going training, which had begun in the Eastern Region and would later be extended to the other regions.

“We would like to state unequivocally that it is not true and it is a calculated attempt to undermine the smooth running of the training workshop.”

“Management would like to assure hardworking teachers that no amount is being charged for the training workshop on the New Curriculum,” the GES said.

It said that “GES in collaboration with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment is also poised to carry out its mandate to ensure that quality education is provided to the Ghanaian child.”

It noted that the Ministry of Education had provided funds to carry out the training for all teachers from KG to P-Six.

The release explained that a letter they were referring to was not related to the training but another capacity workshop organized in collaboration with a private education consultant.

Training for stakeholders 

Stakeholders in Education earlier this week were given an intensive training on the new Standard-Based Curriculum for basic schools.

Participants at the five-day master trainers’ workshop, which opened in Koforidua on Monday, were selected from the Ghana Education Service (GES), National Council for Curriculum Assessment (NaCCA), National Inspectorate Board, National Teaching Council, Public Colleges of Education and the Universities, among others.

To ensure that teachers, the gatekeepers to the effective implementation of the new curriculum, are well exposed, the participants are supposed to, in turn, do the regional and district training for more than 152,000 basic school teachers in the country, scheduled to take place between June-July 2019.
