How To Check If The Book You Are Buying Is Approved By NaCCA

Do you know if the book you buy is NCCA (National Curriculum Evaluation Board) accredited or not? What can you do to ensure that the book you buy on the market is approved?

If you are wondering about any of the questions above, then this article will be very helpful. This is because, in this article, I’ll show you how to check if the book you purchase has been approved by NaCCA.

Education they say is the key to success. But what would formal education be without textbooks? From the beginning of formal education, textbooks have served as the main reference for both teachers and students.

Due to the high demand for textbooks by students in Ghana, many fake publications write their own books and sell them in the market. Most of these books have not been approved by the NCCA (National Curriculum Evaluation Board).

As a result, if you purchase any of these books, you are doing so at your own risk. This is because the book’s content has not been checked to see if it matches the syllabus or otherwise.

As we can all remember, somewhere around 2019, Ghana’s Department of Education, the Ministry of Education and the National Curriculum Evaluation Board decided to review the curriculum at that time.

This is what led to the introduction of new materials for primary schools. Includes some newly introduced topics Our world, our people, our history, computerization (formerly ICT), etc.

After the introduction of these new topics, NaCCA allowed publishers to submit their books for review and approval. Of the many books that have been drafts, only a few have received approval from Ghana’s Department of Education and the National Curriculum Evaluation Board.

All of these books are placed in a database where you can check to see if the book you are purchasing is on the list of approved books. The book verification process is very fast, free and can be done anytime anywhere.

How to check whether the book you are purchasing has been approved by NaCCA

There are two (2) main options available if you want to check whether the book you purchase is accredited by NaCCA. The first option is available to the general public and the second option is available to book publishers who want to check whether their books have been approved or not.

How to check if the book you are purchasing has been approved by NaCCA (public)

  1. Dial * 920 * 65 # from your phone
  2. Select option 1 (the public)
  3. Enter the ISBN for the book (with or without commas)
  4. Wait for comments via SMS (this usually takes a few seconds)
  5. This is available for free on all networks and all types of cell phones.

conclusion

NCCA (National Council for Curriculum Evaluation) and Ghana’s Education Service have developed this platform to ensure that fully Ghanaian citizens purchase only approved textbooks. This way, all fake books that have not been approved by NaCCA will be kicked out of the market.

For every Ghanaian to use this platform, it is free and available on all networks. Therefore, I urge everyone to take advantage of this platform to expel all counterfeit and unapproved books from the market.
