Curriculum and Assessment
- Ensuring the curriculum used by Colleges of Education to train student teachers is effective and central to improving Ghana's education outcomes
- Currently, curriculum and assessment prioritise subject knowledge over teaching skills, increased by the breadth of the curriculum
- Subject content does not always correspond with schools curricula
- Tutors have limited opportunity for professional development
- Access to expert resources is limited for many student teachers
- The DBE curriculum requires further development and assessment
WHAT IS T-TEL DOING?
T-TEL is supporting reform of pre-service Diploma in Basic Education (DBE) curriculum and assessment. Underpinning curriculum reform is the need to agree on a philosophy of pre-service teacher education, develop a set of agreed teacher competencies and professional standards and agree on a process and timeline for a comprehensive review and potential reform of the curriculum, to ensure it is fit for purpose in preparing teachers for the subjects and classes they will teach. T-TEL is facilitating discussion amongst all university providers and government partners to achieve these aims.
