The Ghana Education Service (GES) has denied that it was charging teachers GH¢60 for the training on the New Standard-Based Curriculum for Kindergarten and Primary School teachers.
The GES has, therefore, asked teachers to treat the rumour with contempt and go ahead to participate in the on-going training.
The training has begun in the Eastern Region and would later be extended to the other regions.
In a press release, signed by Ms Casandra Twum Ampofo, Head of the Public Relations Unit of GES and copied the Ghana News Agency, the GES said the rumour is an attempt by some people to mar the exercise.
“We would like to state unequivocally that it is not true and it is a calculated attempt to undermine the smooth running of the training workshop,” the statement added.
The release explained that a letter purported to back the rumour was not related to the training but another capacity workshop organised in collaboration with a private education consultant.
“Management would like to assure hardworking teachers that no amount is being charged for the training workshop on the New Curriculum,” it reiterated.
The statement noted that the Ministry of Education has provided funds to carry out the training for all teachers from Kindergarten to Primary Six.
It said that “GES in collaboration with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment is also poised to carry out its mandate to ensure that quality education is provided to the Ghanaian child.”
