GEPSUK 2018 holds annual forum in London

Some patrons at the forum

On Saturday 23rd June 2018 The Ghana Education Professionals Society UK (GEPSUK) held its Annual Forum which focused on pathways to address education in Ghana.

The event was endorsed by the Ghana High Commission UK. The UK mission sent Afua Gyasiwa Gaisie Head of Education UK to represent in the absence of H.E Papa Owusu Ankomah

Afua Gyasiwa Gaisie read a speech from HE Papa Owusu Ankomah in which she said the GEPSUK Department for International Development (DFID) who could not attend the forum wrote letter stating that:

It is paramount that organisations, like the Ghana Education Professional Society UK, continue to drive improvements in education systems and use mechanisms of international relations and engagement to ask global partners to do more to support improved equity and quality in education.

The event was organised by Ludwig Nii Jr (@ludwigniijr ) founder of Ashmole International Academy School, Adjei Kodwo, Tema Ghana, who is also a former presenter and producer of 4 Syte TV UK

The event brought together Ghanians in the UK and made history because this was the first time Ghanaians in the UK had a event dedicated to education, and we all know that education is the key to unlocking potential in Ghana and economic stability in all aspects of life

The panellist also included the Journalist Martin Asiedu-Dartey, a current Chevening Scholar who spoke about the benefits of his scholarship award from Chevening, an initiative by Ghana’s foreign partner United Kingdom that enhances development in Ghanaian citizens.
