An educationist has appealed to the Ghana Education Service (GES) to help organise periodic in-service training programmes for teachers in private schools.

Mr Emmanuel Ofosu, Secretary of the Private Schools Association in the Atiwa East District of the Eastern Region, made the appeal through the Ghana News Agency (GNA) shortly after a management and staff meeting of the school at Anyinam.


Mr Ofosu, a retired headmaster in the public service and now, proprietor of the Promising Hope Preparatory School, a private school at Anyinam, told the GNA that non-payment of school fees by parents was thwarting their efforts to improve on their structures, bus services, teaching and learning.

According to him, most private learning institutions had lost focus, because some of their fresh tutors employed, had no “teaching techniques”, to guide them to discharge their tutorial work diligently.

The secretary said, many prospective entrepreneurs do not know how to start, where to go for assistance and how to manage their enterprises effectively and efficiently.

Mr Ofosu was optimistic that the directorate of the GES would assist them in their fields of operations to enable their schools to be abreast with the latest teaching methodologies.

The Promising Hope Preparatory School, he said, had earlier organised a two-day seminar, for some 50 teachers from private schools in Anyinam and its environs.
