Release or justify delayed posting of some 2018 trained teachers – Group tells gov’t

A pressure group under the name Teachers and Trainees Advocacy (TTA) has queried the government on the delayed engagements of some trained teachers.
In a statement, the TTA acknowledged and expressed gratitude to the government for the engagement of some 13,500 out of 14,500 trainees who graduated in 2018.
“However, the fate of the remaining colleagues who undoubtedly qualify and yet not posted are in uncertainty.”
“Since November 22, 2019 that the majority of the postings were effected, those left have not received any tangible reasons emanating from the GES as to why they are still not posted,” the statement noted.
The TTA asked the GES to rectify all challenges with the engagement of the rest of the trained teachers or make known to the general public any justifiable reasons delaying same.

TTA wishes to take this opportunity to commend the effort of the government, through the Ministryof Education (MoE) and Ghana Education Service (GES) to secure permanent employment for the2018 trained teachers from colleges of education. This batch, in the history of this country,commenced the major changes in shifting the direction of teacher education. Among these changesare the taking of teacher licensure examination and undergoing of a year national service.Going through these changes, newly trained teachers were skeptical about permanent employmentof which it was rumoured that special application for employment would be written for subjectiveselection by the Ghana Education Service. But, in the end out of about 14,500 fresh teachers, about13,500 have been successfully posted and their employment takes effect from
 December1,2019.
However, the fate of the remaining colleagues who undoubtedly qualify and yet not posted are inuncertainty. Since November 22, 2019 that the majority of the postings were effected, those left havenot received any tangible reasons emanating from the GES as to why they are still not posted. Thefrustration and worrying state of these fateless trained teachers are immeasurable.Through this release, TTA, as an interest party in issues of our education sector, humbly request theGhana Education Service who is their direct employer and all relevant stakeholders, to rectify alltechnical and administrative challenges and release the posting of such remaining distressedqualified teachers as soon as possible.On the other hand, if there are justifiable reasons for the delayed posting of these fresh teachers, wecall on GES to, in no time, come out and explain to them as well as the general public.
