The role of the JTI is to promote effective judicial training for judges, magistrates and judicial staff. It is also strategically positioned to play a supporting role in the judicial reform effort in this contemporary era. Its vision is meant to galvanise it towards seeing itself in the next five years as organisation that can expand its horizon and realise its goals especially in the Sub-Saharan Africa.
Historically, like the case in common law jurisdictions, judges in Ghana received no additional training on appointment to the Bench from the Bar. The Judicial Service Act of 1960 (and Judicial Service Regulations) provided for the establishment of a training school for registrars and allowed for the training of other judicial staff. The Act provided legislative backing for judicial education in Ghana which began in 1965 when the Judicial Service Training School (JSTS) was established and given the mandate of providing training and education for the staff of the Judicial Service of Ghana (JSG). By then training for judges was limited to ad hoc seminars and mentoring by senior judges for junior and newly-appointed judges. Training was extended in the mid-1970s for magistrates, and in the late 1980s to cover continuing education for judges.
In 1995, the JSTS was transformed into the Institute of Continuing Judicial Education of Ghana (ICJEG) to reflect its new mandate of offering continual judicial education to judges and magistrates. In 2004, judicial education in Ghana underwent further transformation, marked by the renaming of the ICJEG as the Judicial Training Institute (JTI) and the appointment of a full-time Director. Since then the JTI has developed and delivered training programmes for new and current members of the Judicial Service with the broader objective of using education and training for developing the human resource needs of the Judicial Service of Ghana, for judicial reform and ensuring judicial efficiency in Ghana.
The JTI recognises the fact that individuals with prior experience and expertise at the Bar require additional training in order to make the transition to the Bench. In addition, the JTI acknowledges that social and technical norms in Ghana are constantly evolving, creating an ever-changing set of demands on the judiciary. Supplementary education and training programmes are needed to enable the judiciary to meet these demands and function efficiently and effectively in Ghanaian society.

The Commonwealth Secretariat was requested to implement the initiative of the Heads of State. In April 1998, the Commonwealth Secretariat held a workshop in London on corporate governance. Twenty four (24) nations were represented. The Commonwealth Association for Corporate Governance was formed as an umbrella body and the medium to achieve the initiative. In June 1998, the Commonwealth Secretariat, The Commonwealth Association for Corporate Governance and the State Enterprises Commission of Ghana organised a three-day workshop in Accra. At the end of the workshop participants unanimously agreed on the need for the formation of an Institute of Directors-Ghana. A Task Force was set up to prepare the grounds for its establishment. The Institute was registered on 21 st May, 1999 with an eleven member Council.
