Orientation workshops and trainings on new Standards Based Curriculum (SBC)

Dr.Matthew Opoku Prempeh joined the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NACCA) to launch a series of orientation workshops and trainings to equip teachers with the necessary skills ahead of the Implementation of the new Standards Based Curriculum (SBC) for Kindergarten to Primary 6 in September 2019.

The ceremony which was held at the Eastern Premier hotel in Koforidua saw a gathering of potential master trainers for all the subjects in the new SBC. Of grave importance to me were the mathematics and English trainers, whom I admonished to inspire hope through their teaching methods, rather than demoralize the pupils and lead them to hating these fundamental subjects that serve as the foundation upon which further knowledge is acquired.

It is my hope that the participants will commit fully to these trainings to enable them train other teachers effectively to see to the successful implementation of the new curriculum.
