At the point when the objective is simply to fill empty classrooms, issues of value instructor arrangement is consigned to the foundation, by one way or another. Comfortable choice stage, the option pathways facilitate the prerequisite for picking up passage into instructor education programs. At the point when, for instance, the second bunch of UTDBE understudies were conceded, I can say with certainty that passage necessities into the CoEs were not clung to. What was underlined was that, the candidate must be a non-proficient essential teacher who has been locked in by the Ghana Education Service, and that the candidate holds a declaration above Basic Education Certificate Examination. The evaluations acquired did not make a difference. On the off chance that this pathway had not been made, the CoEs would not have prepared understudies who at first did not meet all requirements to take on the normal DBE program. In any case, it leaves in its trail the incapacitating impact bargained quality.

Indeed, even with ordinary DBE programs, I have acknowledged, just as of late I should state, that CoEs, specifically, are not pulling in the applicants with high evaluations. This as I have adapted currently affects both educator quality and instructor adequacy. The truth of the matter is, educator education programs in Ghana are not viewed as esteemed projects thus candidates with high evaluations don’t decide on education programs. Thus most of candidates who apply for educator education programs have, moderately, lower grades. At the point when the passage necessity for CoEs’ DBE program for 2016/2017 scholastic year was distributed, I saw the base section grades had been dropped from C6 to D8 for West African Senior Secondary School Examination applicants. This drop in standard must be credited to CoEs’ endeavor to draw in more candidates. The colleges as well, bring down their cut off point for 2019 waec expo education programs so as draw in more competitors.

The colleges as claimed by Levine (2006) see their instructor education programs, so to state, as money dairy animals. Their longing to profit, constrain them to bring down confirmation guidelines, similar to the CoEs have done, so as to expand their enlistments. The way that, confirmation gauges are universally brought all together down to accomplish an objective of expanding numbers. This powerless enlistment practice or settling for the status quo acquaint a genuine test with educator education.
