This partnership is focused on improving teaching and learning in Ghana’s public schools, through supporting the training and onward professional development of teachers.

Since 2021, TFET content has been delivered to 52 Master Trainers, 1,992 tutors and 45,000 Pre-Service Teacher Trainees across Ghana’s Colleges of Education.
