The Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) has earlier today released a press statement demanding for the postings of the current batch of colleges of education graduates from the government. These graduates due for postings are the 2019 batch in addition to a backlog of 2017 and 2018 graduates.
According to the statement shared with Listengh.net, the trainees’ association is very much disappointed in the Honorable Minister for the Education Sector, Dr. Mathew Opoku-Prempeh because he could not deliver the promise he made regarding the posting of these newly trained teachers.
“We were very hopeful and excited when the Honorable minister for education, Dr. Mathew Opoku-Prempeh made an empathic statement on live radio that, the postings of graduates from the colleges of education will be released on Monday, 23 November 23, 2020, after two months of application. Unfortunately, the Ghana education service could not honor this statement and therefore to date, 30th November 2020 these postings have not been released”, the statement added.
The association is thereby pleading with the Ministry of Education, Ghana Education Service, and all other stakeholders of education involved to as a matter of urgency fast-track the release of postings for all qualified trained teachers including the 2017 and 2018 backlogs from the colleges of education.
It however advised the Ghana Education Service to intervene in getting the frustrated trained teachers posted within two working days to prevent mass protest from the trained teachers across the country.
