Project to provide quality graduate teachers launched

Government on Wednesday launched a programme dubbed “Transforming Teacher Education and Learning (T-TEL) to provide high quality graduate teachers who would ensure that students performed well in schools.

The four-year programme is supported by the UKAID with 17 million euros aimed at ensuring that the student-teachers are equipped to deliver high quality teaching and learning in schools across the country.

Launching the project, Vice-President Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur, said the T-TEL would support the country’s 38 public colleges of education on the path to becoming centres of excellence.

He said government was determined to improving the quality of education and ensure the country’s schools had high performing, well trained and empowered teachers for growth and development.

The Vice-President said evidence showed that student-teachers lacked proficiency in the basics of teaching and were not receiving the support they needed in their profession.

He noted that unless the quality of teaching is addressed, the country’s socio-economic progress would be at risk and that though the project, “I would ensure high quality teacher education as the bedrock of high performing education system.”

The Vice-President said the project would provide the resources and skills to give teachers the best chance of excelling in the classroom by delivering technical expertise and professional development to College leadership, tutors and schools.

Mr Akwasi Addae Boahene, the National programme Manager of T-TEL, said the country cannot address issues of climate change, poverty, injustices, and disability without a generation of educated citizens who are equipped to tackle challenges.

 

He said the project work with national institutions including the University of Cape Coast, University of Ed

T-TELucation, Winneba, the University of Ghana, the Ghana Education Service, and the University for Development Studies.
