Details Of Atebubu College of Education
Historical Background of the College
Atebubu College of Education was established in December, 1965 as a teacher training institution to train certificate ‘A’ (4-Year) teachers to teach in the basic schools in the country
In 1974, a batch of students was enrolled to pursue the Certificate ‘A’ (2-Year) Post Secondary Teachers course. However, that programme was phased out in July, 1976. With the phasing out of the Certificate ‘A’ (4-Year) programme nationwide in 1991, the college became a Post-Secondary Teacher Training College offering the 3-Year Certificate ‘A’ course.
The college was given accreditation to run the Diploma in Basic Education programme by the National Accreditation Board in 1st September, 2007. We wish to add that meeting teacher demand remains a great challenge to the MOE and GES due to insufficient numbers of trained teachers to match the demand for teachers in the basic schools. It was against this background that the college was given the opportunity to run the first cohort of the Untrained Teachers Diploma in Basic Education (UTDBE) programme organized by the Ghana Education Service (GES) in 2005.
This first batch of the UTDBE students completed their programme in 2009. The second cohort of the UTDBE students made up of nine hundred and nineteen (919) was also admitted in 2012 and graduated in 2016. With the passage of the Education Act 2008 (Act 778), the college is now a Tertiary institution affiliated to the University of Cape Coast.
With the New Educational standards in place, the Colleges of Education in Ghana now runs a 4-year Bachelor of Education programme.
The Atebubu College of Education admitted the first batch of the B.Ed (primary and Junior High School) students in October 2018.
The Atebubu College of Education is in partnership with the University of Education, Winneba-Ghana and Jackson College of Education who also runs a Distance programmes in Diploma in Basic Education and Degree in Basic Education.
