Parliament has passed the Education Regulatory Bodies Bill 2019, to effectively and efficiently regulate the Education sector.

The Act will restructure and merge the existing National Council for Tertiary Education and the National Accreditation Board into one institution to be known as the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission.

It is also expected to merge the Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training, the National Board for Professional and Technician Examinations and the National Vocational Training Institute, into a new body, to be known as the National Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training.

The Act also deals with the administrative and financial provisions in respect of the five regulatory bodies established under the Bill, and provides for the National Teaching Council, the National Inspectorate Authority and the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment respectively.

The Bill was passed after undergoing intensive amendments at the consideration stage when it was laid and read the first time at the plenary by the Minister of Education, Mathew Opoku Prempeh on May 29, 2019.

Meanwhile, there are two other Education related Bills receiving attention from Parliament.

These are the controversial Pre-tertiary Education and the Public Universities Bills.

Ranking Member on the Education Committee, Peter Nortsu-Kotoe has been giving some insight into these Bills.

Listen to attached audio for detailed information.
