Participants of GNACOPS Workshop
The Ghana National Council of Private Schools (GNACOPS) has organised a sensitization workshop for over 200 private school Proprietors in Ashanti region.
The day’s training was held on Friday 14th May 2021 at the Kumasi Cultural Center and the focus was to offer proprietors a legal understanding on the implementation of Act 1023; Education Regulatory Bodies Act passed by Parliament.
According to executives of GNACOPS, there is the need for private schools who are partners of education to go through the legal interpretation of the provisions under the Act so as to strengthen their operations.
It was also a way of giving participants a complete comprehension on how they can deal with the National Schools Inspectorate Authority (NSIA) and how to also work with the National Teaching Council in terms of teacher professionalism.
The Executive Director for GNACOPS Mr. Enoch Gyetuah said the event is a “national assignment.”
The first was held in Accra followed by Ashanti region’s edition.
From the Ashanti region, GNACOPS officials will move to the remaining regions to replicate same training.
At the workshop, proprietors were given hard copies of the Act for them to read through and ask questions on areas they don’t understand.
The GNACOPS Boss explained in an interview with newsmen that with the knowledge acquired, participants will pass it on to their various district members who are under the council.
