Ferdinand | EducationGhana |July 30|Explanation of the 60% CPD Points to be Accrued by Teachers Per Year
This is a summary of the CPD Meeting that took place on Wednesday, July 26, 2023. The meeting was attended by Union leaders of GNAT, NAGRAT, and CCT GH, along with their officers. Also present were the Registrar of NTC and his subordinates, as well as the Deputy Director General responsible for the Management and Supervision of the Ghana Education Service.
1. CPD Points Acquisition
The result of the meeting indicates that all ranks will now require 60 CPD Points over a three-year period.
Thus, professional teachers who were meant to attain up to 85 CPD points must now obtain 60 points within three years to renew their licenses.
To reach the necessary 60 CPD points over three years, each teacher should accumulate 20 CPD points annually.
2. Employers’ Workshop
As per the agreement between teacher unions and stakeholders regarding CPD point acquisition, the employer is responsible for 60% (12 points per year) of the total 20 points to be earned annually.
Hence, for a teacher to accumulate 20 CPD points each year for three years, the employer must arrange 60% of the 20 CPD points annually.
This implies that the employer must conduct CPD workshops each year, providing 12 CPD points out of the 20 CPD points, for a FEE instead of being free.
Consequently, the teacher is expected to achieve only 8 CPD points each year FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES, while the remaining 12 CPD points are covered by the employer’s arrangement.
3. NTC’s Involvement
4. Workshop by Service Providers
As agreed upon in the meeting, the employer conducts 12 paid CPD workshops per year, providing 12 CPD points. Additionally, the NTC offers 4 free CPD points annually, totalling 16 CPD points.
Teachers are required to participate in two external CPD workshops to earn the remaining 4 CPD points, which account for 20% of the total CPD points in a year.
These external CPD workshops will be organized by Service Providers and cost GHC 150.00 per year for the 4 points, with GHC 75 allocated for 2 CPD points annually.
5. Payment Schedule and Calculations
The Employer must charge GHC 150.00 for arranging three CPD Workshops per year for the teachers. Each workshop awards 4 CPD points.
The GHC 150.00 will be deducted from the Teachers’ Professional Development Allowance annually before payment.
After deducting GHC 150.00 from each teacher yearly, they should accumulate 12 CPD points, which is 60% of their total 20 CPD points to be earned in a year.
NOTE: Out of the 60% CPD points per year provided by the employer, 30% will consist of free Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) organized within the school or otherwise and other important activities, while the remaining 30% will involve the GHC 150.00 workshops organized three times annually by the employer. In contrast, the employer is expected to organize three CPD Workshops annually.
The Service Providers will also receive GHC 150.00 for earning 4 CPD points through two CPD Workshops, with 2 CPD points per workshop, equivalent to 20% of the total 20 CPD points to be earned in a year.
Over the course of a year, the teacher’s contribution towards CPDA will be GHS 300 out of their GHS 1,200 CPDA. They will pay GHS 150 to service providers for four CPD points and pay GHS 150 for 60% of the total CPD points per year to their employers.
Out of the employer’s contribution, 30% will be allocated to PLCs at no cost, and the remaining 30% will be used for CPD Workshops at GHS 150 per year.
