Dr Prempeh stated this when he presented a statement on education and teacher reforms in Parliament Tuesday (August 11, 2020).

Government motivated

The minister said with teachers at the centre of the education system, the government was motivated to initiate several reforms in the education space.

Such initiatives focused on positioning teachers to acquire the right set of skills to deliver quality learning outcomes for pupils and students.

He said for years, pupils and students in basic school – from kindergarten, primary to junior high school (JHS) – were taught by teachers whose initial training had consistently been a source of worry.

Qualifications

Dr Prempeh noted that the minimum teaching qualification for basic school teachers used to be a Diploma in Basic Education (DBE) from colleges of education while their counterparts in second cycle schools’ was a bachelor’s degree from the universities.

To address the challenge, he reiterated that the minimum qualification for teaching at basic schools was now a first degree, in addition to other regulatory requirements of the National Teaching Council.

“Working in close collaboration with, and the support of the T-TEL programme, our aim is to upgrade capacity and improve upon the quality of teacher education to position our teachers to be able to respond to our current and future challenges in education,” he said.
