The First educator education and learning program for Ghana’s fundamental college educators was provided in Universities of Education And Learning (CoE) only, up until rather recently when, College of Education and learning, College of Cape Shore, Central University University and other tertiary organizations joined in. One of the most striking distinction between the programs provided by the various other tertiary institution is that while the Universities educate, analyze and honor certifications to their trainees, the Universities of Education and learning deal tuition while the College of Cape Coastline, through the Institute of Education, takes a look at and award certificates. The training programs used by these organizations are efforts at giving numerous certified educators to instruct in the schools.
