Parliament on Friday, October 16, 2020 passed the Complementary Education Agency Bill, 2019 with the objective of the Bill being to provide programmes outside the formal education system.

Deputy Educational Minister, Dr. Yaw Adutwum explained that the yet to be singed Bill into an Act would provide opportunities and complement education for those who are outside the mainstream formal educational system, and help equip them with the requisite knowledge and skills.

In an interview with journalists in parliament, he further explained that the needs of the old aged who did not have access to formal education due to some circumstances and were left behind in class during their childhood age would be addressed.

He added that it is a great day, because in the history of the nation President Nana Akufo-Addo through the Education Ministry is transforming the process of adult learning in the country.

“Government is going to create many learning centers across the country to enable adult who were left behind access education through the passage of this Bill”, he added.
