The Ghana Education Service (GES) is taking strides towards advancing the quality of education in the country through its ongoing GALOP project implementation. As part of this initiative, a group of selected teachers, Headteachers, SISOS, and Training Officers recently completed a five-day in-person refresher training on Differentiated Learning (DL).
Building on the success of this in-person training, the GES, in collaboration with the National Teaching Council (NTC), is now introducing a mandatory virtual training for educators from GALOP beneficiary schools who missed the previous training opportunity.
The introduction of blended learning strategies, which seamlessly combine traditional in-person techniques with cutting-edge e-learning modules, underscores the commitment of the GES and NTC to empower educators with modern teaching methods. Through this approach, teachers can harness the full potential of digital tools to create dynamic and engaging learning experiences tailored to the diverse needs of their students.

The virtual training on Differentiated Learning (DL) aims to equip educators with the knowledge and skills to effectively cater to the unique learning styles, abilities, and preferences of each student in their classrooms.
