Keywords:Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), educator, monitoring, facilitation, Non-formal education
Purpose –– This paper examines the 5 Key Performance Indicators outlined for the NFE sector in Ghana against the possibility of achieving SDG4.6 in Ghana. The paper argues based on a study conducted by the author in 2017 that a key input into quality non-formal education, especially adult literacy delivery, is the quality of facilitation.
Methods –– A qualitative study approach was adopted using documentary analysis to examine past achievements of the Agency and how it prepares its critical functionaries; the facilitators to effectively deliver in line of the 5 performance indicators.
Findings –– Findings reveal among others that lack of funding has affected training, curriculum and class inputs, whilst irregular supervision, monitoring and evaluation by the MOE and managers have left facilitators with many challenges.
Conclusion/Recommendation –– The paper recommends among others that the reform by the MOE should focus on facilitation-related issues and institutional training for facilitators in the Colleges of Education.
