Directors Welcome Message

The Centre for Teaching Support (CTS) has been established with the purpose of training teaching staff (teachers/lecturers/ tutors) to engage in thinking and developing practices to improve teaching and learning in Higher Education Institutions.

In view of this, the centre organizes training workshop for Lecturers/Tutors/ teachers working in Higher Institutions such as the Universities, Colleges of Education, Nursing Training Colleges and the Polytechnics. The broad objective of these workshops is to strengthen the overall institutional capacity in teaching and learning that is needed in order to widen access to quality higher education in Ghana.

Our training programmes expose teachers/lecturers/tutors working in higher education to practical principles underpinning teaching, learning, assessment and research for teaching in higher education, in a way that enables them to effectively apply their disciplinary knowledge and skills to meet the learning needs of their students. Our training also aims to develop teachers/lecturers/tutors’ awareness of professional and ethical values that promotes effective and supportive learning, research and administrative environments in higher education institutions.
