Government?s decision to transfer teacher trainees onto the Student Loans Trust is showing positive results, says Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, the Education Minister.

Admission figures of the Colleges of Education had now gone up from 9,000 to 15,000.

This undoubtedly was going to improve the supply of teachers, and open up the opportunity to many young people eager to take up teaching as a profession.

Prof Opoku-Agyemang said this in an address read for her at the 10th Congregation of the Saint Louis College of Education in Kumasi.

The Minister said the target was to ensure that 95 per cent of teachers at all levels, was professionally trained by 2015.

It was in line with this that the Ghana Partnership for Education Grant, would be used to train at least 5,000 teachers in the Untrained Teachers Diploma in Basic Education (UTDBE) qualification.

Government together with its donor partners would also support 57 deprived districts and basic schools in planning, monitoring and delivery of basic education services.
