CENDLOS seeks input from stakeholders for a draft bill.

The Centre for National Distance Learning and Open Schooling (CENDLOS) is advocating for legal recognition in order to carry out its mission efficiently.
CENDLOS was founded in 2002 and was previously known as the President’s Special Initiative on Distance Learning (PSI-DL).

It was given the responsibility of regulating, controlling, and advising on online education and open schooling. 

Nana Gyamfi Adwabour, the centre’s Executive Director, spoke to Citi News about the center’s possibilities if it receives legal backing.

“We will confront certain policy issues and obstacles if we do not have legal backing. Countries such as Canada and New Zealand, for example, have a national policy for online education. We’ll need that here to be able to discuss the president’s and Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Adutwum’s, agendas,” he said.
Mr. Adwabour stated that his organization’s responsibilities will be constrained in the lack of legal backing. Meanwhile, he stated that 

CENDLOS is now regulating and monitoring certain areas of online learning in Ghana, but that a necessary law will assist cement his organization’s function.
