About Us

Our teacher training programmes have been specially tailored to provide quality instruction necessary to meet society’s teacher demands and expectations. 

Our programmes are structured to harmonise with the national teacher training curriculum approved by the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission, and are aimed at developing teachers who are excellent creative thinkers, problem solvers and social changers. Our strategic pedagogy will help students to learn through the development of thinking, research, personal study and lifelong learning skills. 

We rely on professionals who use the most current research and practice, to ensure that your training is relevant to your future career or further studies, and to produce teachers who are capable of dealing with today’s fast-changing world and technological advancement. 

Our mode of learning is the blended learning, which encompasses traditional classroom learning (face-to-face) and synchronous and asynchronous online learning. This module was adopted to cater for the different learning needs of our Diverse Learner populations, to keep pace with the fast-changing global digitisation of today’s learning and working environments, and to mitigate the spread and impact of the global pandemic (COVID-19) on our students, tutors and the society as a whole.
