Komenda College of Education obtains in-service training accreditation

ACADEMIC Komenda College of Education

The Komenda College of Education has obtained accreditation from the National Teaching Council (NTC) to organise professional training sessions for in-service teachers in the country.

The sessions will ensure their professional development and help them build credible portfolio for promotion as directed by the Ghana Education Service (GES).

The Principal of the College, Very Rev. Dr Kwesi Nkum Wilson, who made this known, said modules were being prepared by a team of experts from the college for the maiden training in October.

819 graduate

Very Rev. Dr Wilson was speaking at college’s 12th congregation last Friday, when 819 students, including two batches of students who had gone through the Diploma in Basic Education (DBE), graduated.

It was on the theme: “Vocational/technical education in Ghana: The role of the basic school teacher”.

While some of the graduands were present, many joined the ceremony virtually in adherence to COVID-19 safety protocols.

Very Rev. Dr Wilson said the training would cover themes ranging from instructional methods, professionalisation of teaching in Ghana, classroom based assessment, action research and reflective practice, among others.

Accept postings

He charged the graduating students to accept posting to the rural and deprived communities to impact education in those communities.

Dr Wilson further urged them to exhibit professionalism, good ethics and leadership skills in their work as professional teachers.

“Much will be expected from you with professionalism, good ethics and leadership skills. The nation needs you, especially to serve in the deprived areas of Ghana. You have an obligation to serve mother Ghana and excel in your service,” he stated.

He also advised the graduands to be agents of change and avoid short cuts, to be critical thinkers and be disciplined.

Place of teachers

Dr Wilson noted, however, that a major challenge to the attainment of the many educational policies had been the place of the teacher, adding that the quality of education young people received was inextricably linked to the knowledge, intelligence, professional skills and competencies of teachers.

Speaking on the theme, the Dean of Graduate Studies at the University of Cape Coast, Professor Sarah Darkwa, said educating people without skills meant they could not make the expected change nor contribute to innovation, research and job creation.

She stressed the need to increase the quality of TVET systems, strengthen skills  and competencies to meet the needs of the labour market, create quality jobs and put in place more supportive government policies to support TVET education.
