Decentralisation of 1st and 2nd cycles to District Assemblies

Strengthening of tertiary education

3. ESP Strategic Framework

The ESP is structured in six focal areas:

  • Basic Education (BE)
  • Second Cycle Education (SC)
  • Non-Formal Education (NF)
  • Inclusive and Special Education (IS)
  • Tertiary Education (TE)
  • Education Management (EM)

Ghana: Ministry of Education

thematic areas
Thematic areas

There are three thematic areas for each focal area:

Socio humanistic [access, equity, welfare]

Educational [quality, skills development]

Economic [efficiency, effectiveness, value for money]

Ghana: Ministry of Education

policy objectives and strategies
Policy objectives and strategies

There are policy objectives and strategies for each focal-thematic area.E.g. BE12 is one of the policy objectives for Basic Education under the Education thematic area:

Policy objective BE 12:Develop a literate numerate society

Related strategy:

Ensure that all P6 graduates are literate (in English and a Ghanaian language) and numerate

strategic framework
Strategic Framework
  • The framework is presented in a matrix showing focal area by theme
  • Each entry in the matrix gives the relevant strategy
  • The strategies are derived from the Work Programme (Vol 2) which link to indicative targets, activities, time frame, and responsibilities

The next step is to ensure that Regions and Districts develop their own Work Programmes
  • In due course each region/district will have its own Work Programme based on Volume II of the ESP – using the same structure, but tailoring the indicative targets and strategies to the specific needs of the region/district, whilst being consistent with, and supportive of, national objectives

Ghana: Ministry of Education

The work programme links to a three year rolling operational plan(Annual Education Sector Operational Plan: AESOP). The next one will be AESOP 2010 – 2012 and will be ready in September
  • Together the local Work Programmes and AESOPs should form the basis for successful implementation of the ESP
