This year, thirty-four prisoners are participating in Ghana’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), an essential milestone marking the transition from Junior High School to Senior High School and Technical Institutions.

The candidates, all male, include 27 juveniles from the Senior Correctional Centre (SCC), five from Nsawam Maximum Security Prison, and two from Sunyani Central Prison.

These inmates have been diligently prepared by qualified teachers from the Ghana Prisons Service and the Ghana Education Service.

The Ghana Prisons Service has been committed to reformation and rehabilitation, introducing formal education on a pilot basis at the Senior Correctional Centre in 2007, later extending it to other prisons. This initiative aims to help inmates acquire basic literacy skills and certificates to facilitate their smooth reintegration into society.
