THIS DECEMBER: GSET to Hold Seminar 2 of TTT for 30 School Leaders & Teachers in the Eastern Region
On December 13, 2021, Miracule D. Gavor, Founder of GSET was awarded $10,000-to cover the cost of training materials- for the Teaching Training Together (TTT) program for 90 selected teachers and headteachers in Ghana. Earlier this year, four(4) private schools in Koforidua were selected as beneficiaries of the scholarship: Pentecost Preparatory School (PPS), Lizbern Educational Complex, Wesley International School and the Trinity Royal School.
Each cohort of participating schools consist of a total of 30 teachers and headteachers who are expected to complete three (3) rigorous seminars characterized by high-quality simulated videos, practical workbooks and reference resources each led by a Certified TTT Facilitator within an academic year. These teachers will complete seminars 1, 2 and 3. Each seminar is a three-day-whole-day training: two days for teachers and their headteachers, and a day dedicated to headteachers only.
GSET successfully launched the programme and held the Seminar 1 dubbed, “A Community of Collaboration” for headteachers and “The Role of a Teacher Planning a School Day” for teachers in September this year.
Having successfully organized Seminar 1 in September, Seminar 2 dubbed “A Culture of Improvement” for headteachers and “Multiple Intelligences” and “Differentiating Instruction” for teachers is set to take off from 19th-21st December to prepare teachers for the coming school year in January.
Building a community of more informed teachers and headteachers, who are challenging routines and transforming education delivery and learning in their schools, Seminar 2 comes to equip the participants with knowledge and feasible skills to improve practices and cultures to distinguish themselves as educators and implementers of educational innovations in their school communities.
GSET & TTT desire that classrooms be transformed by more effective headteachers and teachers and are honored to utilize the TTT program to develop and build more intentional school communities. Transforming one cohort at a time, GSET hopes to extend this training to all 90 participants by 2024.
GSET is a leading professional membership association that works with the Ghanaian education community to promote the use of technology to inspire innovation in education. Since its inaugural launch on July 22, 2019, by the then Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the Ghana Society has engaged and continues to break new frontiers in educational teacher training, technology and STEM education.
The Teaching Training Together (TTT) organization is a community of educators with the aim of reaching out globally to persons who have inadequate access to school leadership and teacher training. Possessing the potential to affect more educator communities which would in turn aid the students learn more effectively with highly trained teachers, TTT has been on the lookout for new partners across the world to help create a 3 year professional development program in their communities.
