Just some few days ago, the management and stakeholders in collaboration with PRINCOF of all colleges of education within the country held a meeting at the eastern region, koforidua.
The main motive of the meeting held was to identify how the double track system of education can be introduced and implemented across the 46 colleges of education.
The government and the education ministry have now directed that due to the inadequate classrooms and dormitory spaces in some respective colleges, the level 400 students and the level 100 students that will be admitted in November will report to school for six weeks while the level 300 and 200 stay at home. Again, they will change over after the six weeks.
Also, it would be recalled that the Colleges traditionally run a three year diplomatic program where the final years leave campus for one year teaching practice. And this normally create a lot of classrooms and dormitory spaces at the Colleges.
However, with the introduction of the 4 year bachelor degree program by this government, all the level 100, 200, 300 and 400 will be on campus and this will create much pressure on the school’s facilities since they are limited. Henceforth, there is the need to introduce and implement a double track into our colleges of education.
Currently, the Colleges are to hold on till November to reopen so that they can admit new fresher’s when their WASSCE results are out.
Finally, remember that admission into colleges for the 2020- 2021 academic session has been postponed to 21st September.
