The first batch of one 132 teacher trainees to be awarded Diploma in Basic Education certificates have pass out at Gbewaa Training College (GBETCO) at Pusiga, near Bawku, in the Upper East Region.

The trainees, comprising 28 females and 104 males, underwent a three-year course with a one-year out-of-college teaching practice.

Mr. Abdul-Rahman Gumah, Bawku Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), urged the teachers to be disciplined and committed to duty to improve the standards of education in their respective schools and to support development initiatives in their communities.

Speaking at the passing out ceremony, MCE said the government had established the necessary educational structures and institutions towards human resource development in the country and elimination of poverty.

He said there was the need for appropriate educational policies and programmes to meet national aspirations and the challenges posed by globalization.

Consequently, the government initiated the New Educational Reform and was transforming teacher training colleges into Diploma awarding institutions.

Mr. Luke Abugri, Principal of GBETCO, said the abolition of the Certificate ’A’ programme and the introduction of the Diploma programme was aimed at ensuring effective teaching and learning.

He commended government for its commitment to the development of education and said teacher training institutions would continue to complement government’s efforts.

Alhaji Ibrahim Kobila, a member of the Board of Governors of the College, advised the new teachers to pursue further studies to upgrade their skills and knowledge.
