The National Teaching Council (NTC) has congratulated the first Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) cohort from the 46 public Colleges of Education.

In a statement issued on Friday, October 28, the NTC said it is hopeful that the graduating teachers have been well trained and are ready to impact learners with the knowledge and competencies of the standard-based curriculum.

“It is the hope of the Council that you will come out successfully in your just-ended final exams and sit for the reformed Ghana Teachers Licensure Examination (GTLE) which forms part of the processes of becoming professional teachers.”

You are not just the pioneers of the four-year B.Ed. programme but also pioneers of the Subject and Computer-based GTLE,” the statement added.

The four-year Bachelor of Education programme for the first batch of students ended on Friday, October 28, 2022.

In 2018, the colleges of education went through a transition and were upgraded from three-year Diploma in Basic Education awarding institutions to four-year Bachelor of Education degree-awarding institutions.

The degree programme offers three main areas of specialisation – early grade education, primary education and junior high school education.

These included a modular-tailored form of training to prepare teachers to teach in basic schools in the country.

The teacher students have completed their four-year degree courses and the NTC has sent out best wishes to them.
