The GTEC reports that Enchi College of Education was ranked the best-performing college among the 46 colleges in the nation following the successful implementation of the Bachelor of Education degree in the 46 training colleges in Ghana.
Enchi College of Education had all 20 successful indicators, representing 83.3%, out of the 24 indicators in the program’s various components, including Teaching and Learning of Student Teachers, Assessment of Student Teachers, Student Teachers’ Preparation Form, Experience of Supported Teaching in School (teaching practise), and Tutor Professional Development Sessions, making the college the best among the competition in the new curriculum implemented in 2019.
Enchi College of Education stands out whenever a new revision is made in teacher education in Ghana, according to Philip Ntaah, the college’s principal, who made this statement during a ceremony to commemorate this historic achievement on the college’s campus.
He emphasised that after the Diploma in Basic Education for Teacher Training Colleges was implemented, a national quiz was held, and Enchi College of Education came out on top. It also placed second during the most recent reform, and it is currently ranked first in Ghana for the reliability of the Bachelor of Education’s implementation.
Meanwhile, Professor Samuel Nii Ardey, Provost of the University of Ghana’s College of Education, expressed his joy at being a part of the Enchi College of Education’s success story.
He offered his congratulations to the college’s principal, his staff, tutors, and students for their outstanding performance.
Finally, Professor Samuel Nii Ardey urged the wonderful college students to seize the opportunity that is presented to them.
Since their parents have made significant sacrifices to get them into college, he said, the students must make every effort to make them proud. Students must therefore honour their parents by performing well.
The Tufufohene Enchi, speaking on behalf of the Aowin Traditional Area, Nana Payin II, stated that following the college’s success, the traditional authorities in Enchi will do everything in their power to ensure the college reaches its goals.
He added that the chiefs would continue to assist the college whenever it needed them.
