The Ministry of Education has held a cocktail reception in Accra in honour of the sponsors of the 2014 National Best Teacher Awards. They were presented with plaques to thank them for the support extended to the Awards scheme and to motivate them to continue to support the scheme.

In all, 18 companies that have been consistent in sponsoring the award were honoured. They included the Metropolitan Pensions Insurance Trust, the SIC Life, SEDCO Publishers, EPP Books Services, Promasidor Ghana Ltd, RLg, Vestel Publications and Vidya Books Stores. Others were Sam-Woode Ltd, Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, National Investment Bank, IPMC Kludjeson Institute of Technology, Fidelity Bank, Omega Compu-System, ACTECH Supplies and Logistics, and KAPCOK.

The Minister, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang disclosed that the ministry is considering expanding the Best Teacher Award to include the Best School category, in honour of educational institutions from the pre-school to the senior high school level that perform creditably.

The proposal, expected to take off during the 2015 edition of the awards, will be one way of recognising the efforts of such schools, which extends to all the teachers, non-teaching staff, the community, parents and everyone who supports the school.

She noted that a committee had been constituted to develop the criteria and modalities to select the best school for the award. Professor Opoku-Agyemang mentioned some of the areas the committee would be considering to include the quality of leadership and management, condition of the school, the quality of teaching and learning and standard of academic achievement, school and community relationship.

Prof. Opoku-Agyemang, however, added that in the event that an SHS that won the award already had a computer laboratory, such a school would receive science laboratory equipment or a library with books.

She appealed to the corporate world to support the new areas the ministry was adding to the already existing one.

Responding on behalf of the sponsors, the Managing Director of Vidya Books Stores, Ms Heene Karanehandani, thanked the ministry for recognising sponsors of the award and gave the assurance that they would continue to offer their quota to education delivery.
