Education consultants in Ghana praise new primary school curricula

CSLEP looks to use school curricula to shape the workforces of the future, an issue that is increasingly coming to the fore in Ghana. Newfound political stability has driven economic growth in the country, and public and private organisations alike are working to ensure that the right entrepreneurial spirit is fostered in the country.

The government of Ghana has now introduced a new syllabus for kindergarten and primary schools, and Neogenics has expressed its approval of the new policies, praising the fact that it allows for the spread of digital literacy amongst the next generation in Ghana, something that is increasingly of the essence in contemporary economies.

Lead Consultant at Neogenics Grant Bulmuo has called for cooperation across all sectors to help realise the potential of the new measures. Stakeholders in the new policy include teachers, educational unions, parents and investors, and Bulmuo has called for action amongst all sections.

As Ghana’s economy has grown, the education environment has failed to keep up with international trends. “Therefore, we as an educational consultancy with the vision of bridging the education gap in Ghana believe this reform is the way forward to make Ghana a global player in the educational space,” read a statement from Neogenics.
