ICT Training for all Teachers for their CPD by KAT, GES & Microsoft
Teachers in all the 16 Regions of Ghana are supposed to collect points for the Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
Couple of months ago, teachers received a laptop to assist them in their teaching and learning activities even though, a number of them are yet to receive their laptops.
Well, the GES is stopping at nothing as they pilot tested an ICT training for all teachers in some of the regions in Ghana, both physical and online. The training was in the Greater Accra Region and the five (5) Northern Regions.
Following its success, the Ghana Education Service in collaboration with KA Technologies (KAT) and Microsoft decided to roll out the ICT training for all teachers in all regions across the country.
As mentioned in the letter, “As part of the One-Teacher, One-Laptop initiative, all teachers are expected to undergo some basic ICT training to help them use the various e-learning resources that have been made available on the laptops”.
The letter further reads, “KAT champions (ICT Coordinators trained by KAT) will support the training.”
“Teachers will receive points for their Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and certificate for participation upon successful completion and assessment. Please note, no fees are charged for the certificate“.
Teachers are to note that they will be participating in some simple quizzes hence, the need to take the training serious. To receive the certificate, one needs to pass the online exams first.
Participants will have to use their emails in order to access the system. The email should be the one you used in collecting your laptops.
Teachers are advised to follow their respective training schedules shared with KAT and GES for effective monitoring. The training, both physical and online modules commenced on July 5, 2022.
This notice has been signed by the Deputy Director-General (MS), Anthony Boabeng.
