GPC is an independent quality and standards organisation, appointed as an external accreditation entity for the Psychology Profession in Ghana under the Health Professions Bodies Regulation Act 2013 (Act 857). GPC develops and reviews accreditation standards for psychology programmes of study in Ghana. We then work with National Accreditation Board, education providers and use the accreditation standards to determine whether programmes of study for students seeking to practice as a registered psychologist, paraprofessional and lay practitioner in Ghana meet the required education standards. GPC accredits all applied psychology programmes of study in the country.
