Parliament’s Education Committee to meet GTEC over accreditation of University courses
The Education Committee of Parliament will be meeting management of Technical Universities in the country as well as the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC) mid-September.
The meeting will among other things afford the committee an opportunity to inquire about some alleged expiration of accreditation for some courses run by the some universities in the country.
The 2021 Auditor General’s report cited some public universities, including technical institutions for running unaccredited courses as at the time of the AG office’s review in December 2021.
Speaking on Mx24 News on Wednesday in reaction to the development, Ranking Member on the Education Committee of Parliament, Peter Nortsu Kotoe was hopeful that their meeting with the respective institutions will help settle the issues.
“Fortunately, we have a meeting with the technical universities and the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission in September so we will inform the Director-General of GTEC to come and brief us fully on this accreditation issue next month, hopefully by 15th and 17th of next month we should be meeting them,” he said.
In the interim, he suggests that GTEC should come out and “tell the public what they have done so far” regarding the issue of accreditation.
