rationale for programme

bachelor of education in basic education

The Ghana Government's commitment is to improve quality education through the introduction of Capitation Grant, S S School Feeding Program, Free test books and free school uniform has resulted in increased enrolment in basic schools. This situation calls for adequate number of well qualified highly competent and motivated teachers. There is no doubt that teachers from the pivot of any education system. How ever, through the sustainable development goals(SDGs) and education for All(EPA) time line, the lack of teachers in classrooms, especially in rural classrooms continues to be a common spectacle in the provision of education at the basic level. The Quality and quantity deficits in teachers training and development are major factors in quality and access to basic education in Ghana. Currently, according to the ministry of education, about 60,000 teachers are needed to fill vacant positions in the school system in the country.

The Current teachers education policy in Ghana provides for pre-service preparation of teachers and training is located in the university and College of Education which offer full time Degree and Diploma courses in Education respectively. These programmes are in fact, not enough to absorb the teaming applicants. The two public teacher education universities, namely the University of Cape Coast and the University of Education Winneba are not able to absorb interested SSS graduates who are eager to be trained as qualified professional teachers.

The situation arguably, requires private participation in the provision of teachers education and this should be encourage to fill the perpetual deficit in the provision of professional teachers in the basic level.

The Community College Takoradi, has therefore, positioned itself competitively to a post Diploma and Regular Degree Programs in basic education to prospective applicant.

Bachelor of education in early childhood Education

The significance of Early Childhood Education throughout the world has been phenomenal. This is as a result of continuous scientific research that support the age old view that a stimulating early education has positive effect on the ability of the developing child in all aspects of life. In spite of the fact that early childhood century has existed in Ghana for a long time now, attention has not been given to the training of personnel for this level. These centuries were received to be simply child care units which needed mother surrogates. The consequence of this has not been critically studied even though the media have repeatedly reported a few human treatments meted out to some children in some of the centuries.

In 2007, Ghana officially made kindergarten education part of basic education program. This has necessitated for the formal training of teachers for level. The expanse and ever-growing number of both public and private school makes it difficult for Government alone to train all the needed personnel for this early child education sector. Consequently, immediate private sector initiative and intervention in this direction in highly crucial. The Community College, Takoradi, is therefore, taking up the challenge to help fulfill the dire need for trained professionals in the early childhood education sector in Ghana for for the purpose of improving professional delivery of early childhood services in school as well as ensuring professional treatment of the children in this sensitive informative years.

The rationale of this programme is therefore to ensure that the professionals in Community College teach children:
1. base on sound child development principles of how children grow and learn.
2. what is meaningful for them
3. what is relevant to their lives
4. by linking ideas to personal experience that they have had or can have easily
5. to be sensitive to and respectful of cultural and linguistic diversity
6. to use analysis and reasoning skills
7. to link concepts across activities
8. to apply concepts to their everyday world
9. to be creative about ideas
10. to observe and and evaluate their ideas and conclusions
11. to think about their own process of thinking
