January 2016

On January 26, TFG was officially launched to the public. We were joined by Wendy Kopp, CEO of Teach For All; representatives from the Ghana Education Service; one of our largest donors, SWIFT; multilateral organizations; and other esteemed guests and supporters.

 

 

February 2016

TFG was a recipient of the very first Varkey Foundation Challenge Fund grant award. The Fund “looks to support early-stage initiatives which build the capacity of teachers and to strengthen the status of the teaching profession. [the Fund] is part of the Varkey Foundation’s vision of providing every child with a good teacher and a quality education.”

March 2016

The TFG recruitment team led a targeted and potent campus recruitment strategy. We visited and spoke at Ashesi University College, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, University of Cape Coast, and the University of Ghana, Legon. Through these trips, we learned more about the hopes and dreams of Ghana’s young leaders and recruited highly committed individuals with a passion for educational equity.

 

April 2016

TFG dedicated April and May to interviewing qualified candidates for the opportunity of a lifetime. All successful candidates went through a very rigorous 5-part interview process consisting of: An Online Application Screening; A Telephone Interview; An English & Mathematics Competency Assessment; A Subject Knowledge Audit; and a day-long In-Person Assessment.

May 2016

TFG held its very last set of interviews. In total, we received over 1,000 registrations and over 300 applications. The hard work of selecting the inaugural cohort began. The TFG application and interview process is very competitive – we offered positions to only 10% of all applicants!

 

June 2016

TFG was excited and honored to welcome 33 Fellows to join the organization as the very first cohort of TFG Fellows. 

On June 26, the inaugural cohort of Fellows showed up to our office in Accra and were bused to Ashesi University, where TFG was privileged to host our intensive and immersive 6-week Training Institute. We were grateful to have had Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur, wife of Ghana’s Vice-President, Kwesi Amissah Arthur, as a guest of honor to welcome and encourage the Fellows on the very first day of Institute.
