Right To Play Ghana will be embarking on a series of training workshops to equip teachers with creative and innovative ways of delivering the newly approved curriculum.
The training programme spanning three weeks for different groups will capacitate teachers in how they can promote play-based learning and active methodology in lessons delivery.
The teachers would also be taken through a gender-responsive pedagogy to encourage the effective participation of both boys and girls in their learning process.
The training would take place in three regions and five districts namely, Greater Accra (Ga South), Volta (Keta) and Northern (Kumbungu, Savelugu and Tolon). It would start from Monday 11th November to Friday 29th November 2019.
The project is in line with the organization’s vision to improve the learning outcomes and holistic wellbeing of children and youth by contributing to achieving inclusive quality education and child protection outcomes in Six regions of Ghana (Western, Central, Ashanti, Greater Accra, Volta, and Northern-Upper East and West), through capacity building, awareness creation/advocacy and partnerships.
The programme would be preceded by the orientation of the district Trainers composed of education officials and teachers who would help to facilitate training for teachers.
The training is part of the five-year Gender-Responsive Education And Transformation (GREAT) project, being implemented across four regions, five districts and 139 primary schools.
The GREAT project is reaching 946 teachers (representing 486 males and 460 females) and at least 34,646 children (representing 17,323 boys and 17,323 girls) from kindergarten through to primary six.
The use of gender-responsive play-based learning methodology motivates and stimulates children’s learning and supports them in the development and consolidation of their skills and concepts.
The GRPBL also helps in shaping the positive attitude of children toward their individual and shared future.
The project is funded by the Global Affairs Canada (GAC) and implemented in partnership with districts, school management committees and parents’ teachers associations.
It is expected that the training manuals and lesson plans integrating the gender-responsive play-based learning methodology that Right To Play is using to train these teachers will be validated by NTC and NACCA for dissemination and use by all teachers in the country.
