The Deputy Director General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Kwabena B. Tandoh, has urged teachers to take professional examinations to help enhance teaching and learning among Ghanaians.

He said the introduction of the Professional Learning Community and Profile Development Days were to enhance learning among communities to help teachers.

Mr Tandoh was speaking on the introduction of the upcoming new teaching curriculum for teachers at the Third Annual Conference of the Ghana Association of Teachers of English (GATE) in Accra on.

He said English Language was a fundamental subject that helped to explore the world and therefore needed to be taken seriously to make learning easier for other subjects.

Mr Tandoh said the use of vulgar language, shortcuts and social media language had found its way into formal writing, which was unacceptable.

He said the GES existed to ensure that Ghanaian children of school-going age were provided with quality formal education and training through effective and efficient management of resources.

The Head of Science Education Unit at the GES, Andrews K. Quaning, said the Free Senior High School had increased the enrollment in most schools with the attendant challenges of large class sizes.

He said the analysis of the 2018 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Education results showed that out of 312,095 candidates registered, only 74,966 qualified to enter  tertiary institutions.

“I have always maintained that we have a responsibility as Ghanaians to ensure that we meet the expectations of our citizens in terms of quality.”

Mr Quaning said parents would not be happy if after several years of engagement in pre-tertiary education, the children had nothing to show.

“Ghana has gone through several phases in language policies and as it stands now and the law requires that all subjects are taught in English Languages,” he said.
