The Teacher Trainees’ Association of Ghana (TTAG) has call on all its members and newly trained teachers to protest and openly register their displeasure towards the Ministry of Education (MoE) and the [ads1]Ghana Education Service(GES) for their failure to employ newly trained teachers for the 2018/2019 Academic year.

Meanwhile, a closed-door meeting was held today between the executive of TTAG and GES to resolve the issue but all efforts by TTAG proof futile.
“Going on, this morning the leadership of TTAG at the National front met with GES and they again stated that we will be doing the National Service for a period of one year and we will be posted by the NSS then after one year we will be given employment based on the financial clearance given by the government when we apply for job. It means that the number of people who will be employed will be reduced drastically because the government will be limiting it based on the financial clearance”
“I, therefore, urge us to engage in this last demonstration to petition the Presidency come tomorrow to see the way forward”. Prince Adjah (Newly Trained Teacher).
