Making Sense of Secondary Education in West Africa: The WAEC Countries

May 20, 2020

Free Webinar | 2:00-3:00 pm ET

This presentation will provide an overview of secondary credentials from the WAEC countries: Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone. We’ll discuss their similarities and differences, and look at the secondary leaving credentials historically: which documents can be expected from which examining board at which period in time. We’ll discussion online verification methods, and will conclude with commentary on how the secondary credentials have impacted postsecondary credentials.
