The Registrar of the National Teaching Council (NTC), Dr Christian Addai Poku has revealed that approximately 30% teachers are unqualified to teach in the classroom.
Addressing the congregation at the launch of the Ghana National Council of Private school teachers’ continuous professional development (PST-CPD), Dr Addai reiterated that it is for this reason that the NTC , GNACOPS and MoF are collaborating to train 2,000 unqualified private school teachers.
According to him the training will form the basis for pilot training of unqualified teachers to equip them with the best practices.
This will help these teachers to gain mastery in teaching literacy and numeracy in-depth knowledge.
The main impact of education in the society is the provision of knowledge that will integrate individuals and make them to be more meaningful individuals in the society who are capable of solving their problems.
Research has shown that qualified teachers have been seen as an effective instrument towards achieving this effective teaching. It is pertinent to mention here that ineffective and poor teaching in schools has continued to cause some havoc by shattering the hope and aspiration of some students, especially the ambitious ones.
Failure to expose learners to hands- on experiences has resulted in their low academic performance especially in the subjects like Mathematics and English.
In this regards the Teaching Council Executive Director has indicated that over 1,000 private school teachers will be trained on how to effectively teach literacy and numeracy to improve their in-depth knowledge in the teaching profession.
