About 400 unemployed graduate teachers have appealed to the government and the Education Ministry to have them immediately posted.

According to them, despite graduating from the various Colleges of Education, they are yet to be posted to the various senior high schools in the country.

President of the coalition of non-posted trained teachers, Kennedy.S. Adjei, speaking on the ‘Y’asem Nie’ segment of Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem Wednesday, revealed that all 400 teachers had not been posted two years after completing college in 2017.

“We are over 400 teachers who have not been posted since we completed our programme of study from 48 training colleges in 2017; we have completed our national service and have been duly licensed. We have enough training to teach but can’t because we’ve not yet been posted,” he said.

The group accused the Ghana Education Service (GES) of omitting their names from the teachers’ posting list for 2019.

“We have all it takes to be posted per the requirements of GES, but for some strange reason our names were omitted from the posting list for 2019, those of us with index numbers below year 2016 and 2017 were omitted from the list,” he bemoaned.

Public Relations Officer for the coalition, Emmanuel Asabre, also speaking on the issue said following the omission of their names from the list, the group petitioned the GES and the Education Ministry on the matter, but there is no solution in sight.
