A 4-member team from the National Curriculum Development Centre in Uganda, is in Ghana for a week long study tour with the overall goal of benchmarking on the international curriculum development and impact assessment processes from Ghana with the aim of improving the education system of Uganda.

The minister for Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, said he was grateful for their visit and to study Ghana’s curriculum development process.

He stated that Ghana’s curriculum was reviewed every five years by independent-minded professionals without interference from the ministry to make it credible.

In a contribution, the Deputy Minister-Designate, Dr. Yaw Adutwum, noted that the government of the New Patriotic Party, was aiming at improving education at all levels with emphasis on science, mathematics, technical, vocational and agricultural education and training.

He also disclosed to the visitors that the government was introducing the free senior high school policy, to ensure that every Ghanaian child, irrespective of his/her circumstances, had secondary education.

Earlier in a welcome remark, the team, on behalf of the minister, the Chief Director, Mr. Enoch Cobbinah, assured them of the ministry’s support to make their stay in the country fruitful and memorable..

According to him, the visit by the group would go a long way to deepen Ghana-Uganda relations as well as bring about the sharing of experiences.

In a brief remark, the Director –General of the Ghana Education Service, Jacob Kor, said the visit was good because, “Ghana’s educational system was meaningless until it was linked up with other African educational systems”.
