AMECO auditorium can no longer hold students

The auditorium of the E. P. College of Education, Amedzofe (AMECO) in the Ho West District of the Volta Region can no longer contain the ever-increasing student population.


The decades-old hall has a seating capacity of 250 while the college currently has an enrolment of 1,096. As a result, official functions on the campus take place in the open in the extremely cold Amedzofe weather.

The college management has, therefore, secured the architectural design and bill of quantity for an ultra-modern auditorium, waiting for the GETFund or public-spirited organisations and individuals to help execute the project.

The Principal, Dr Dickson Tsey, disclosed that at the 17th matriculation of the college. In all, 240 fresh students, including 124 females and 116 males were admitted to Bachelor of Education, Junior High School Education; Junior High School Education (French); Upper Primary Education, and Early Grade Education programmes.

Gender Inclusive

The principal said AMECO continued to pursue a policy of offering opportunities for tertiary education to women through the Gender Inclusive Policy, as well as to applicants from less-endowed schools on a concessionary basis.

Dr Tsey said the college also offered admission to talented sportsmen and women who satisfied the general entry requirements of the institution. “All these are geared towards providing opportunities to everyone to realise his or her God-given potential and project the institution in the field of sports,” he explained.

The matriculation coincided with the launch of a five-year strategic plan of the college to enhance teaching, learning and in AMECO, a resilient infrastructure and eco-friendly environment on the campus, as well as leadership and quality management.

The principal said the plan also focused on stakeholders’ engagement, quality assurance, monitoring and evaluation, equitable access, inclusivity and gender diversity. “The plan also focuses on partnership and cooperation for sustainable development, financial stability, integrated reporting and accountability, management information system and digital transformation,” he added.

Dr Tsey said the plan was in line with the stance of the college to provide a world-class learning experience by investing in faculty, updating the curriculum, and leveraging modern technology to create an interactive and engaging learning environment.

“We believe in fostering a culture of innovation and research where students and faculty members are encouraged to explore new ideas, collaborate on projects and contribute to the growth of our institution and society as a whole,” he said.

The Chairman of the AMECO Governing Council, Rev. Dr Lawson Kwaku Dzanku, said the need for the strategic plan arose from the unwavering commitment of the college to provide top-notch education and equip the students with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world.
