The Distance Learning phenomena and principle is what all stakeholders including parents, guardians, and students alike must master, to ensure that they get the most out of the Diploma in Basic Education programme offered by Jackson College of Education.



Admission is a process. Once an individual has met the necessary entry requirements and the online application process has duly taken its full course, the selection process is done. For more information about our admissions, please click here >>>



Parents and guardians must note that Jackson Educational Complex, in its bid to achieve its vision and mission coupled with its core values, upholds high levels of discipline, and this is expected to groom our students into a good human resource through excellent educational tutelage, leadership skills and more.


Structure and Roles

The College Council is the highest decision-making body, however to maintain efficiency and not compromise on quality, a semi-decentralization system is practiced in the JEC Distance Learning programme.

The over 30 learning centres  spread across the country are semi-decentralized with supervisors overseeing the day-to-day activities. They work under the supervision of coordinators and in collaboration with centre partners (who are office staff that engage them on correspondence level). This is to ensure that in as much as the centres are decentralized, the head office is involved in the running of the centres.

The supervisors are the ones on the ground and represent management at the grass root level, hence are the first point of contact for the parents and guardians and must therefore be accorded all the necessary courtesies. All student issues must be addressed by them first, if need be, the coordinators can also be consulted. In very rare cases where neither can address the issue must it be brought to the head office. Other than that, all concerns that need to be addressed by a higher authority such as the management must be channeled through the centre supervisors.


Platforms for Payment of Fees

Parents and guardians are advised to use only the JEC prescribed channels of paying fees and other financial commitments. JEC will not be liable to any mishap associated with payments not done through the JEC prescribed channels.

With the utilization of technology, fees can now be paid stress-free through the School Fees Payment System at Cal Bank, Transflow at Ecobank, ADB, GCB Bank and HFC Bank only.

With the exception of school fees, other monies relating to requests for attestation/introductory letter, transcript, graduation fees, JEC paraphernalia, etc. can be paid at any branch of Sinapi Aba Savings and Loans, unless otherwise stated.

With all these avenues in place, students who fail to pay their fees in full will not have their semester academic results released to them.

Parents who would like to have their child’s academic records, and the implications/interpretation of their grades should kindly place a request at academics@jackson.edu.gh, providing the necessary details.

a.     Full Registered Name of child/ward
