Fifty-nine inmates of the Nsawam Prisons are pursuing diploma programmes in Business and Education through the University of Cape Coast’s Distance Learning Programme.

Twenty-seven of them are reading Diploma in Commerce, while the remaining 32 are studying Diploma in Junior High School Education.

This novel project, dubbed “Inmates Tertiary Education Programme” follows a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Ghana Prisons Service and Plan Volta Foundation, to allow long-term serving inmates to enroll onto the University of Cape Coast (UCC’s) Distance Learning Programme of higher education.

The Vice-Chancellor of UCC, Professor Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, made this known in a speech read on his behalf at the matriculation ceremony for students of the Southern Zone of its College of Distance Education (CoDE) for the 2019/2020 academic year.

The ceremony was an official platform to receive and admit students into different programmes under CoDE, through swearing a matriculation oath.
