Gyamerah announced that the college was affiliated with the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), and per the affiliation agreement would provide oversight mentorship to the college to ensure it adhered strictly to the quality standards in the preparation of the teacher trainees on the National Teacher Education Curriculum Framework and the National Teaching Standards.

He commended the government for its continuous support for the colleges of education to fully attain their tertiary status, especially the payment of the tutors' book research allowance, the GETFund infrastructure support and the construction of a 300-bed hostel for each of the 46 colleges nationwide.

The principal was also grateful to the college's governing council, the management, the academic board, all staff members and the Students Representative Council, as well as the Methodist Church, Ghana, for their support and cooperation since the establishment of the institution.
