Capacity building workshop for circuit supervisors ends
A two day-training workshop for 77 circuit supervisors of education on the administration of School Education Association (SEA) ended in Koforidua on Tuesday.
The workshop was aimed at equipping the participants with the requisite knowledge in order to impart it into head teachers and teachers to make the SEA exercise succeed.
In a speech read for her, Mrs Akosua Takyiwah Adu, Eastern Regional Director of Education, urged Circuit Supervisors of education to ensure that the SEA exercise succeeded.
She said SEA was a programme instituted by the Ghana Education Service in 2006 to assess Primary two and four pupils in public schools in English language and Mathematics.
Mrs Adu said the programme had replaced the Performance Monitoring Test (PMT) and would be conducted every two years.
She said the programme was not on competitive basis and it was to identify the strengths and weakness of pupils in the two subjects and devise strategies to rectify them and improve on education level.
Mrs Adu asked Test Administrators to desist from assisting pupils during the exercise in order to get reliable results for data purposes.
She urged teachers to mobilize resources to meet the challenges of making quality education a reality.
She urged stakeholders to organize regular school performance appraisal meeting to access the SEA result in their schools.
