About Offinso College of Education

 

The Offinso College of Education was established in 1950 by the Gold Coast District of the Methodist church. The College was named Offinso Training College, established purposefully to train Women Cathecharists for the church.

The College traces its history to Mr. Andrews Krakye Denteh who was a tutor at Wesley College in Kumasi but hailed from Asamankama-Offinso. He heard of a proposal made by the Missionaries to establish another College either at Offinso or Dunkwa-On-Offinso in 1954.

When he heard this information, he rushed to inform nana Wiafe Akenten II – Omanhene of the Ofinso traditional area. Promptly, Nana Wiafe invited some people such as Opanin Kwadwo Krah of Asamankama, Opanin Kofi Fofie of Obuase-Offinso, Mr. Moses Kwame Boakye of Abofour and Mr Emmaunel Kwabena Abu of Dentnin to discuss the information with them. They joyfully received the information and together agreed to carry on the idea of the establishment of the College here in Offinso in 1955.

A two-storey building was provided by Opanin Kwadwo Krah free of charge. The facility provided offices, dormitories, a dining hall, staff accommodation and a library for the College. This building located opposite Ghana commercial bank, Offinso, housed the College for eleven years commencing 3rd February 1955 when the College was officially opened. Opanin Krah’s house, also given for free served as an additional College facility when the enrolment of students and staff was increasing.

Mr M. K. Boakye and Mr. E.K Abu served as secretaries. They were among the few learned ones around. When the College became firmly rooted, Nana Wiafe Akenten II – Offinsomanhene allocated a vast parcel of land (105), located between Ampabame and Adiamra, Offinso, without cost to the College.

The Methodist missionaries started to develop the land by putting you the most needed facilities such as a two-storey administration block, a two-storey classroom block, a two-storey dormitories block, a dining hall and staff bungalows. When the new site was ready, the College was moved from its old site in January 1966 to its new site where it is presently stationed.

The College started with 32 female students for the two-year Teacher’s Certificate ‘B’ and had as tutors the Principal, Miss Dorothy M. Turnbull, Miss rose Aseidu Awuah, Mrs Rose Coker and Miss Victoria Homiah. Mr S.K. Arku was the Clerk/ Bursar from the 1962/ 1963 academic year. The two-year Certificate ‘B’ programme was upgraded to a four-year Certificate ‘A’ programme and in 1971 student enrolment had increased from 60 to 300.
