MoE/World Bank Ends SEIP Mission


The World Bank mission which provides implementation support to the Secondary Education Improvement Project (SEIP) has ended in Accra. The Mission meeting was held from July 14 to 20, 2015 at the premises of the Ministry of Education (MoE)

Discussions were held with the implementation team of the SEIP from the MoE and the Ghana Education Service (GES). The mission team also met with independent verifiers, impact evaluation consultants, and with CAMFED which is providing technical assistance to the scholarship implementers.

Mrs. Deborah Newitter Mikesell, Senior Operations Officer at the WB and the Task Team Leader for the SEIP was happy with work done so far under the component one of the project.

She said the mission was able to solve bottlenecks that arose from the fact findings on the Disbursement Linked Results of the component one through suggestions and advice.

Mrs. Misekell hoped the existing collaboration between MoE and WB would continue to facilitate the completion of the secondary education project.

She was also hopeful that the MoE would be able to achieve results on targets set for year two.

The Hon. Minister for Education, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, said the new schools promised by the Government would be packaged well to attract students. She said come September this year, the schools would be opened for operations.

Prof. Opoku-Agyemang, however, cautioned that attention should not only be focused on the secondary education while the project is on-going. She urged the team to be mindful of the other segments of education since education comprise of every aspect from basic to tertiary.

She praised the team working on the SEIP for their dedication, commitment and determination to succeed.

The Deputy Minister in Charge of Pre-Tertiary, Hon. Alex Kyeremeh said the team has done satisfactory work and hoped the next component of the project would also be done with the same enthusiasm.
