Training workshops for over 1000 teachers in Asante Akim-South
About 1,000 public basic school teachers in the Asante Akim South District are to benefit from a series of training workshops, to be organized by the Ghana Education Service (GES).
The workshops are designed to upgrade the knowledge of the teachers on the new syllabus, introduced under the Education Reforms.
Twenty-three teachers and officers drawn from the district were trained in various subject areas in Kumasi last February to serve as resource persons for the workshop.
The workshop, which is compulsory for all public basic school teachers, would be held in all the nine Circuit Centres.
Mr Ernest Acheampong, Deputy District Director of Education in charge of supervision, who opened the first of the workshops at Obogu on Monday, said the move was to equip the teachers with effective methods of teaching the new syllabuses.
He said the GES had noticed with concern problems facing some teachers in teaching certain topics following the introduction of the Education Reforms.
He observed that the New Reforms had come to stay, hence the need for stakeholders to play their respective roles effectively to ensure its success.
