Change Of Name: NIB changed To NaSIA
NIB changed To NaSIA
The National Inspectorate Board (NIB) has in a press statement signed by Rita Eva Arthur (Mrs); Ag. Director, General Administration disclosed that it has changed its name to National Schools Inspectorate Authority (NaSIA) with immediate effect.
What does NIB do?
In 2008, the Education Act, 778 established the National Inspectorate Board (NIB) with 3 main responsibilities:
1. School Inspection
NIB undertake periodic inspection of pre-tertiary private and public schools in Ghana. The Council sets up inspection panels that will inspect schools periodically at the discretion of the Council or specifically at the instigation of a credible stakeholder association or organization.
NIB’s inspection panels perform their duties within the guidelines of an Inspection Framework and under a strict Code of Conduct.
2. School Evaluation
NIB evaluates, on a periodic basis, the quality of teaching and learning in first and second cycle institutions across the country.
NIB believes the quality of learning is closely linked to the quality of the school which, in turn, is determined by the quality of the teachers, what goes on in the classroom, and the overall culture and learning environment of the school.
3. Enforce Standards
NIB sets and enforces standards to be observed at pre-tertiary educational institutions. We do this by asking key questions such as:
- Is the curriculum appropriate?
- Is the pedagogy appropriate?
- Are teaching and learning materials available and appropriate?
- Are class sizes in tune with the expected learning outcomes?
- Is there evidence of technology-mediated learning?
