First private training college in Brong Ahafo

Twimia/Koase (Brong Ahafo)- Godbless Training College at Twimia/Koase, near Techiman, the first private training college in Brong Ahafo Region, has taken off with an intake of 50 students.

The college, established by God Bless International Schools, is expected to increase its intake to 120 students by December. Godbless Amankwa, Director, said this when he took the Techiman District Director of Education, George Amano-Kyeremeh and newsmen round the college on Monday.

He said he established the institution as a personal contribution to uplift education in the region and appealed to the people in the district to support his efforts.


Amano-Kyeremeh lauded private participation in teacher education in the district and the region in general. He said the number of training colleges in the region "is woefully inadequate" and pledged that the GES would do its best to support the college.

Amano-Kyeremeh assured the students that they would be offered employment by the GES on completion of their training and asked them to co-operate with their tutors and study hard. Kwadwo Owusu Kyenkyenhene, Manager, said a computer laboratory would be set up at the college.
