The Government of Ghana is addressing poor learning outcomes and recognises that teaching is both a barrier and a solution to progress. Getting well-educated, motivated teachers into Ghana's schools is critical to improving the learning outcomes and the country's growth and development.

The new Bachelor in Education (B.Ed) curriculum aims to improve the learning experience of pre-service teachers who are ready to teach, inspire and educate Ghana's young people so they can lead the country's progress and prosperity.

About us

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.

T-TEL is  funded by UK aid as part of its Girls Participatory Approaches to Students Success (G-PASS) programme and managed by Cambridge Education.

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.

We are driven by trust, integrity, collaboration, communication and accountability.


Our focus

By 2020 the right conditions should be in place for a teacher education system which meets the needs of the country and benefits both teachers and pupils alike.

Our partners

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.
