The Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has hinted of government's plans to increase the duration of teacher training from the current three years to four years.

The final certificate will also be up-graded from Diploma to a Bachelor's degree.

Consultations, involving all the major stakeholders such as the Conference of Principals of Colleges of Education and Vice Chancellors, have already begun.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh made this known in Kumasi at a meeting with some staff of the Ghana Education Service during which he outlined a number of policy initiatives being introduced by the government towards improving the quality of education in the country.
