The Principal of Our Lady of Apostles (OLA) College of Education, Reverend Sister Amoako-Arhen, says the school plans to include ICT in its curriculum. The Principal announced this change at a graduation ceremony called “Transforming Teacher Education for Better Service to the Nation,” which included a variety of heads of colleges and religious authorities, noting the importance of offering ICT education to teachers.

This college provides instruction for the following other courses: “early childhood education, science and mathematics education and general social science programmes, with elective course in literature in English, catering, sewing, art education, music and dance, physical education, religious and moral as well as agricultural science.”

Dr. Ato Essuman, the former Chief Director of the Ghana Education Service, emphasized the importance of innovative steps such as these to respond to the need to improve teacher education in the country.
