Ghana is among nations with the best trained and dedicated teachers in the world – Adutwum

The Minister for Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, has observed that Ghana is among nations with the best trained and dedicated teachers in the world.


The Minister attributed the recent winning of international awards and nominations of some Ghanaian teachers by international agencies recently as a testimony for this feat and pledged the government’s preparedness to continue improving the welfare of all teachers in the country.

Dr Adutwum made the observation when a delegation from the National Teaching Council (NTC) paid a courtesy call on him in Accra.

The courtesy call which was led by the Registrar of NTC, Dr Christian Addae Poku, was aimed at introducing 43-year old Senior High School Teacher, Mr Evans Odei, who has been shortlisted for the top 10 Global Teachers Awards slated to take place in November this year to the Education Minister.


The candidate, who is a mathematics teacher at the Achimota SHS in Accra was adjudged as the overall best teacher for the SHS category by the Ghana Teacher Prize last year and among the top 10 for the Ghana Teacher Prize last year.


Dr Adutwum in a short exhortation lauded the candidate saying “congratulations, you have made the nation proud with this achievement”.


He assured him of the government’s support as he goes into the final bit of the contest slated for 10th November 2021.
