At the school, the minister, sat through a whole lesson in Standard 4 to appreciate the teaching standards and uptake of learners.


He said he impressed with the class performance and standard of teaching, adding: “if this reflects the standard countrywide, then surely, the country is on a positive trajectory”.


The Ministry recruited and trained 221 inspectors to the Education Inspectorate Cadre (EIC) in January 2020 with support from USAID and UKAID through Local Government Accountability and Performance (LGAP) project.


After successful completion of the training, the inspectors will now conduct education inspection in randomly sampled schools across the country.
