Teacher Education Reform – Ghana (T-TEL) on Tuesday, September 9, 2020, organized a-two-day practical training for Colleges of Education on the use of Quick Books for their job specifications.
The training saw some College representatives from the Northern and Southern parts of the country gather at Accra College of Education conference hall. They were mostly Finance Officers and Auditors with a few from T-TEL.
The participants were warmly welcomed by the Principal of Accra College of Education, Dr. Samuel Atintono. He took the opportunity to advise the participants to take the training seriously to make great impacts in their various Colleges of Education.
The participants were, Eric Herbert Kwaw (Enchi College of Education), Ernest Fobi (Fosu College of Education), Frank Yeboah (Wiaso College of Education), Prince Kwofie (Komenda College of Education), Rosina Botsyoe (St. Teresa’s College of Education), Sampson Fusese (St. Francis College of Education), Gilbert Agyemang (Dambai College of Education), Pramfi Appiah Edward (Methodist College of Education), Simon Kpodo (Ada College of Education), Samuel Odame Agyiri (Accra College of Education), Bernard Frimpong Opoku (Ofinso), Emmanuel K.

The facilitator / Pro Adviser of the training, Prince Kwesi Afum immediately took over after Dr. Atintono’s welcome address. He begun by letting the participants know how to configure or set up the Quick Book software. He further asked them never to use Wi-Fi instead of LAN connection whenever using the Quick Book application. Even though the Quick Book uses intranet and not the internet, you may need the internet to make some transactions. Due to this, he advised the student body should not use the same internet network with the College Administration.
Participants were also taught how to back up their files, how to set up passwords, how to receive payments, how to upload students’ data into the software, and also how to make students deposits and refunds.
The participants were grateful for the level of knowledge imparted into them on just the first day of the programme.
Day two (2) commenced with participants learning how to write cheques, payment of bills with the use of the Quick Book software, inventory evaluation and also importing Microsoft office files.
The participants were asked to keep their passwords off the head so they do not come disturbing the Quick Book Pro Advisers by telling them they have forgotten their passwords.
Participants came up with questions and contributions with regard to the use of the software and challenges.
The participants were most grateful to the organizers of the training for imparting into them much knowledge in discharging their duties in their various institutions.
Dr. Samuel Atintono, Principal of Accra College of Education commended all the participants for participating fully and also urged them to make good use of what they have learned.
