In the struggle for non professional teachers to secure funds to further education to obtain degree certificates to acquire a teacher license to teach and remain in the profession, the Executive body of the National Council of Private School Teachers (NCOPST) on Wednesday, 7th December 2022 visited Guinness Ghana Breweries Limited, Achimota – Accra to solicit for financial support.
The Executive body of the Council presented a proposal letter to the Corporate Relations Team after they discussed the initiative.
In an interview with NCOPST Executive Director, Mr. Ackon James he explained that many Private Schools cannot afford to pay good salaries that will enable their teachers to save and get money to further education hence the initiative.
He said, according to NCOPST Finance Department, they have projected to support 1233 non-professional teachers to enroll in Degree Programme in the year 2023.
According to the Director, this initiative will take the Council 6 years to support 6233 Non Professional Teacher’s Education.
“In view of our projections for six years, we humbly call on other Corporate Entities, Churches, and Philanthropist organizations to support our initiative” he stated.
He urged all private school teachers who want to be part of the Non Professional Teachers to be supported in the year 2023 to fill the Financial Support Form and also register to be a member on the council’s website, adding there will be a shortlist of beneficiaries so interested individuals should hurry and register as member and fill the financial support form HERE.
