A five-storey multi-purpose head office complex, situated at Ayeduase New Site in Kumasi has been commissioned to serve the administrative operations of Jackson Educational Complex (JEC).
The College, which has been accredited by the National Accreditation Board, is affiliated to the University of Education, Winneba. The institution currently has the Jackson College of Education as its teacher education department and it offers a 3-year Diploma in Basic Education by Distance Learning with over 5,000 students.
Commissioning the five-storey edifice, Mrs. Theodosia Jackson, the Principal, said the College was established to assist the masses to acquire hope for a brighter future. She encouraged people, especially the youth, to embrace Distance Learning as a convenient means of upgrading themselves. She also recounted the strides made by the College since its inception in 2009.
She reaffirmed the College’s readiness to train and instill hope into students who enrolled for the Diploma in Basic Education Programme. It will be recalled that, last year, the College successfully graduated its first batch of students who are contributing to the knowledge based economy in Ghana.

Prof. Charles Ansah of the Presbyterian Church, Christ Congregation of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) led the thanksgiving prayers whilst the dedication of the edifice was performed by Rev.
