The Centre for Educational Policy Studies (CEPS) was established as a reputable, interdisciplinary research-led centre that seeks to provide in-depth understanding of the relationship between educational policy, research and practice at the institutional, national and international levels.  The Centre also conducts research, teaches and plays a leading role in the formulation and practice of educational policies in Ghana and beyond. CEPS was established in 2000 in response to the need to undertake research into educational issues and to influence educational practice in Ghana and elsewhere.
