In-In-Out accommodation for students of colleges of education to change

The “In-In-Out,” structure of accommodation for students of the colleges of education, where students spend first two years on campus and the third year on school attachment will change slightly beginning from the 2013/2014 academic year.

Under the new structure, the third year students would spend the first semester on campus for more content study integrated with methodology and spend only the second semester outside campus attached to a basic school.

Mrs Christina Bampo Henaku, Principal of Accra College of Education, said this at the Seventh  Matriculation ceremony of the college where 285 fresh students were admitted. They were made up of 172 males and 113 females.

She said this meant that during the first semester all students would be on campus and called for immediate expansion of lecture halls and boarding facilities for the institute.

Mrs Henaku acknowledged the GETFund yearly allocation to the colleges of education for infrastructural development but however said the amount was too meagre.

She noted that to ensure that the college produced qualified and competent teachers for basic schools, the college had selected the establishment of a demonstration school as its Golden Jubilee project.

“A demonstration school is a basic need for any good college of education,” she said.

Mr Aheto-Tsegah, a Deputy Director General of Education, stressed the importance of the teaching profession and advised the students to embrace it wholeheartedly.

He called on the trainees to be creative, innovative, versatile and smart and be ready to improve on their knowledge.
