Getting well-educated, motivated teachers into Ghana’s schools is critical for its continued growth and development.
Transforming Teacher Education and Learning (T-TEL) is a four-year Government of Ghana programme, supported by UK aid to transform teaching and learning in Ghana through support to relevant national bodies, institutions and all 38 public Colleges of Education (CoEs). It is part of DFID’s Girls Participatory Approaches to Students Success (G-PASS) programme in Ghana.
Through an investment of £17 million – over 90 million cedis - T-TEL aims to ensure Ghana’s future teachers are equipped to deliver high quality teaching and learning in schools across the country and is committed to supporting CoEs to make the successful transition into becoming autonomous tertiary "centres of excellence".
The programme works with the Government of Ghana and its partners to deliver technical expertise and professional development to College leadership, tutors and schoolsand provide the resources and skills to give teachers the best chance of excelling in the classroom.
T-TEL is also building strong relationships with the national institutions that contribute to teacher education, and Colleges of Education to ensure institutional and curriculum support for policies and standards that support quality teaching and learning outcomes.
What do we hope to achieve?
- Improved governance, management and pedagogical direction in all 38 public Colleges of Education with the direct participation of over 200 senior leaders.
- Over 1,500 tutors effectively using T-TEL teaching and learning materials– freely accessible online - for lessons and tutorials.
- Over 35,000 student teachers, better prepared, empowered and gender responsive for a career dedicated to improving young people.
- Greater innovation and results in teacher education through fund investment of nearly £2 million.
