The Management of GES Has Finally Cleared the Air About Lesson Notes Preparation for Teachers

Recent Articles

In a statement released and signed by Cassandra Twum Ampofo, the Head of Public relations for GES on 21st February 2022, It said;

The position of Management of Ghana Education Service on preparation of Lesson Notes by teachers is that Lesson Notes must be prepared and approved. This is being enforced strictly.

The issue, however, has been whether the Lesson Notes should be prepared manually or electronically, especially in the midst of the ‘One-Teacher-One Laptop’ programme.

At a discussion with the Teacher Unions, the consensus was that for now, the system should be made as flexible as possible. That is, it should be based on agreement between the teacher and his/her supervisor.

Thus, where both teacher and the supervisor agree that it should be prepared and submitted electronically, it should be allowed. Where it cannot be transmitted electronically, a print-out of the typed lesson notes should be submitted for vetting and approval. Where for any valid reason, it cannot be prepared electronically, it should be done manually based on agreement between the parties.

The statement further continued that, Management wishes to emphasis that the feasibility of phasing out the manual preparation of lesson notes will be discussed at the appropriate time when every teacher has received his/her laptop and trained. This should not cause any apprehension among any section of staff of the Service

In related news the document also talked about the shortages of chalk in school.

GES said, the processes for procuring and supplying chalk to the schools are far advanced. Indeed, some urgent supplies have been made to areas like Western, Western North and Eastern Regions. All other Regions which need chalk will be supplied. It is also important to stress that there are in other Regions where we have unused stocks of chalk and some are being moved to areas which need some urgently.
