From a modest beginning with the first crop of 21 men as students and and three members of staff in 1948, today, the college can boast of population of 900 students (men and women) and 42 members of teaching staff and also having trained several thousands of teachers who have served and continue to serve the needs of the length and breadth of the nation.St. Joseph’s Training College was founded in 1948 by Rev. Father Joseph Moulders the then Parish Priest of the Catholic Church at Bechem. It started as a two-year teacher’s certificate “B” college. It became the first teacher training college in the Ahafo area of the then Gold Coast to cater for needs of the then expanding programme of Education in the country. The land on which the college is situated was donated by Nana Fosu Gyeabour 1, the then Bechemmanhene, and his elders in 1947.
