The final year (first and second semesters) B.Ed program exam results of students who graduated from the 46 public Colleges of Education will be released by end of January 2023, the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) has said.
In a statement shared with AcademicWeek, the Association said the management of the Institute of Education and University of Cape Coast (UCC) gave the deadline to release the B.Ed program exam results at a crunch meeting.
“The leadership has been in close contact with the management of the Institute of Education, UCC on the release of examination results to the pioneers of the B.Ed program in Colleges of Education
We have had assurance from the Director of the Institute of Education that, the results shall be released latest by the end of January 2023,” the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) stated in the press release dated January 10.
The B.Ed program examination results release date comes after the country’s first batch of Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) students graduated from various 46 public Colleges of Education (CoE) across the country in the 2022 academic year.
The Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) program is in line with the National Teachers’ Standards which is well prepared to deliver the standards-based curriculum rolled out nationwide in the 2019 academic year.
Describing the implementation of the Bachelor of Education program as successful, the Teaching, Education and Learning organization (T-TEL) said 2022 marks the fourth and exit year since the implementation of the B.Ed.
“2022 marks the fourth and exit year since the implementation of the B.Ed. programme and the implementation has experienced remarkable improvements in teaching and learning, leadership and governance, professional and institutional development, quality assurance and Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI)
We want to congratulate all pre-service and in-service teachers, particularly our beginning teachers, for their resilience, hard work and dedication to raising the standard of the teaching profession,” T-TEL noted in the post on its website.
It added “this is a major milestone in Ghana’s ambition to become a learning nation. We are confident that these new teachers will make a significant positive contribution to learning outcomes in our school system in the years to come
This historic achievement is part of Ghana’s drive to professionalize teaching and to join the select community of nations requiring a Bachelor’s degree as a minimum qualification for entry into the teaching profession.”
