The National Council of Private School Teachers has rolled out plans to empower private school teachers with entrepreneurship training and support programmes aimed at assisting private school teachers to acquire relevant entrepreneurial skills that will enable them to venture into owning and managing their businesses upon completion of training. The council believes this will help teachers have additional sources of income apart from their income from teaching in private schools. The long-term aim is to make teachers in private schools financially independent.
As part of the aims and objectives of the National Council of Private School Teachers (NCOPST), the council has advised all private school teachers to join the Entrepreneurship Skills, and Digital skills training that has been introduced by the council
After the training, the council will source for grant to support the participants (private school teachers in Ghana) to establish their own small business to attach to the teaching job for a better livelihood
“We will train them on all kinds of production, such as sanitizer, soap, perfume, yoghurt, and many. Also, we will train them on website development, app/software development, artificial intelligence, robotics, and many more” NCOPST disclosed to Ghanaeducation.org.
The private school teachers entrepreneurship skills training is a laudable initiative by (NCOPST) which must be embraced by all teachers in private schools who want to improve on their financial independence, acquire skills that can help them become entrepreneurs.
