Government has reiterated its commitment and support to Colleges of Education.

In a speech read on his behalf, Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, said government will not waiver in its determination to mold students and teachers who will take opportunities through teaching and learning in this technology-driven economy.

The Minister said this at the investiture of Dr. Samuel Atintono as the 7th Principal of the Accra College of Education.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh said significant progress made in the College of Education Sector is to enable government to achieve one of its quality educational goals of pre-tertiary teachers with a minimum qualification of Bachelor’s degree.

He called on stakeholders of the college to support its leaders to achieve the country’s motto “Freedom and Justice”.  The elected Principal Dr. Samuel Atintono said he will work hard to improve the college and help it achieve the excellence it deserves.

The Accra College of Education was established in November 1962 at Accra New Town as a government Teacher Training College with an initial intake of 19 students. It was moved to its present location at East Legon in January, 1985. It was the only day teacher training college in Ghana until 2001 when it gained boarding status.
