Transforming Teacher Education and Learning (T-TEL) in Ghana is a six-year government programme, supported by UK aid, to ensure Ghana's teaching graduates are equipped to deliver high-quality, inspirational teaching and learning in schools. We are working with the Ministry of Education, its regulatory agencies, all 46 public Colleges of Education (CoEs) and other education institutions to strengthen pre-service teacher education in Ghana and to support the implementation of the Bachelor in Education (B.Ed) degree.
Vision, Mission and Values
At T-TEL, we aim to transform teacher education and learning outcomes for every Ghanaian child.
We work with key education stakeholders to bring about high quality education for all girls and boys in Ghana.
At T-TEL, all that we do, think and cherish are driven by:
1. Training and coaching for CoE tutors in Mathematics, English and Science, and eventually generic materials for all tutors;
2. Support to the management of CoEs and training of its Principals;
3. Support to reform the pre-service curriculum;
4. Support to develop more effective student practicums;
5. Work with MoE and regulatory bodies on the implementation of existing policies for teacher education;
6. A Challenge Fund to which CoEs and their partner districts and schools will be able to apply to carry out innovative initiatives;
7. A set of incentives for each CoE to improve their management and training delivery.
T-TEL is a six-year programme, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) as part of its Girls Participatory Approaches to Students Success (G-PASS) programme and managed by Cambridge Education.
We work closely with the Ministry of Education (MoE), the Ghana Education Service (GES) and all 46 public Colleges of Education (CoEs) in close consultation with:
- National-level institutions with regulatory responsibilities – the National Teaching Council (NTC), the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE), the National Accreditation Board (NAB) and the National Inspectorate Board (NIB);
- Five universities – the University of Cape Coast (UCC), University of Education Winneba (UEW), University of Ghana (UG), the University of Development Studies (UDS) and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Two committees – a Steering Committee and a Technical Advisory Committee – provide overall strategic direction and technical oversight, respectively.
