The Ministry of Education has supplied more than two thousand Science, ICT, Technical and Vocational equipment to the Mampong Technical College of Education. This is to help deliver quality technical education, using the College as a centre of excellence.
The Acting Principal of the College, Perpetual Emma Gyenfie said this at the College’s 11th Matriculation ceremony held at Asante Mampong.
About four hundred students were admitted to pursue a four-year Bachelor’s Degree in Education in Junior High School Programme.
As part of government’s reforms to improve learning outcomes through quality teaching, learning and research, all the 46 Public Colleges of Education have since October 2019, began the implementation of a four year Bachelor’s Degree in Education Programme.
The programme is to ensure well trained and equipped professional teachers capable of applying learner centred and gender sensitive pedagogies to teaching and learning. Students will be expected to embark on weekly supported teaching in partner schools.
In view of this, Principals of the 46 Public Colleges of education have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Directors of Education and Heads of Partner Schools to ensure compliance.
College management and course tutors benefitted from series of workshops organised by the University of Cape Coast and T-TEL to adequately prepare staff for the smooth take – off and implementation of the programme.
The Acting Principal of the College, Perpetual Gyenfie said the College is fully prepared to admit more students.
The Dean of Students Affairs, Douglas Koranteng who took the journalists around to inspect, the new equipment, commended government for retooling and equipping the College with the needed ultra-modern tools.
He, however, urged government to as a matter of urgency provide the College with state of the Art Assembly Hall.
