HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

Tamale Polytechnic began as a trades center in 1951 and then became a government training school in 1954. The institution was further converted to a junior technical institute in 1960. As a result of the Educational Reform Programme and the enactment of the PNDC law 321 in 1992 Tamale Polytechnic was elevated to tertiary institution alongside Accra, Ku

 

masi, Ho, Cape Cost and Takoradi Polytechnics. The polytechnic now trains students up to the Higher National Diploma level, with provisions to mount degree programs soon. Since the inception of the polytechnic as a trades center its catchments area has been mainly in the Northern Region, Upper East and Upper West. In spite of the fact that there are now Polytechnics in every region across the country Tamale Polytechnic still has a reasonable level of influence in the three regions and even beyond. This is an indication that the polytechnic continues to maintain a long standing role as the premier training opportunity for middle-level technical and managerial personnel in the north of Ghana.
