2021 was certainly a year of promise by the Ghana Education Service and the Ministry of Education to teachers, students, and the entire country.

We take you to some of the popular promises made by the Ghana Education Service, and the Education Ministry

University graduates’ recruitment

The Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has said that the education ministry will seek clearance to recruit graduates from the various universities.

According to him in an interview on Wontumi Tv, the portal that just closed was for the graduates from the various colleges of education, and his outfit will try and recruit graduates in January or February.

“…they gave us this number for trained teachers only, we hope to recruit the university graduates in January or February”

Recruitment of NABCo trainees permanently

It is obvious that the Ghana Education Service will not get any graduates from the college of education to recruit this year, except for some backlogs.

With this, the education minister promised to fill the various vacancies by using the NABCo trainees, specifically the Educate Ghana Trainees.

“…we won’t get graduates from the colleges of education next year (2022) because of the 4-year degree program. So those in the education model with their certificates and documents will get the opportunity”

Implementation of CCP for JHS

According to Dr. Adutwum, the new curriculum for Junior High Schools will be implemented this year. He emphasized that the training of the teachers will take place in 2021

“Junior High School curriculum will be implemented next year(2022, the policy is to ensure that we do the training this year and make sure textbooks are ready before we start the implementation.

However, our checks indicate that the training did not take place last year as stated by the Education Minister.

Textbooks for teachers

The new curriculum was implemented 2 years ago, however, teachers are yet to receive textbooks to facilitate the teaching and learning process.

Teachers have been promised that their textbooks will be ready this year. “In anticipation of the delays, the Ministry of Education and the GES developed, trained, and distributed Teachers’ Resource Pack for each grade level and subjects for all 150,000 plus KG One to primary six teachers.

“Procurement processes have commenced and it is expected that the books will be available for use next academic year,” Prof Opoku-Amankwa assured the general public.

Distribution of laptops

After all the brouhaha, the remaining laptops for teachers will be distributed to teachers in January. In a press release by the Ghana Education Service, the remaining laptops for pre-tertiary teachers will be ready this month

”As of today 10th December 2021, 80% of the 62,000 laptops for Senior High School teachers have been delivered across the regions. This phase is expected to be completed on the 17th of December, 2021.

Phase 2 and 3 for the Junior High and Primary schools will commence in January 2022 when schools re-open.”

No more writing of lesson notes

With the distribution of the laptops, teachers have been told the laptops are pre-installed with the teaching and learning materials needed by teachers to facilitate the teaching and learning processes

This means the writing of lesson plan into lesson notes is no longer needed once the laptops are distributed

“Digital online training and learning modules will commence in the coming weeks for every teacher. The training will include digitizing lesson notes, using online tools for learning management and supporting learners. These online training will attract CPD points for the teacher.”
