To strengthen our relationship with our Partner schools in Ghana, British Council  organised the School Leaders forum for its Partner school Directors and Principals on Wednesday 22 June 2022. This was the first biggest Face to Face event that the British Council has had with the Partner School, since the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The objective of the forum was to give the school leaders an update on the British Council Partner Schools offer as well as updates on Cambridge Assessment International Education and to take feedback from our school leaders.

Over 50 school leaders from 35+ British Council Partner Schools attended the forum which was organised in Accra.

The forum kick-started with Chikodi Onyemerela, Acting Country Director, British Council Ghana, giving a welcome address, followed by speeches from Alison Sriparam, Regional Exams Director, British Council, SSA and Ammar Ahmed, Director Examinations East / West Cluster, British Council.

Sean Harris, Business Development Manager and Country Lead - Ghana, Senegal & Sierra Leone, of the British Council did a presentation on the latest updates on the British Council Partner Schools offer. This was followed by a presentation on Cambridge Assessment International Education updates delivered  by Efua Asiedu, Manager, West Africa, Cambridge.

Rob Liang, the Managing Director of Cambridge University Press and Assessment who was also present at the leaders’ forum gave an update on Cambridge learning resources and books.

The event climaxed with presentation of iPads, certificate, and trophy to Akosombo International School for emerging as the Global winners for the 2021/2022 Your World Competition, a competition which is part of the British Council Partner Schools core offers.

British Council gave the schools the updated plaque and certificate at the end of the event and reaffirmed its position in supporting its partner schools to better run UK qualifications in Ghana.
