The Teacher Trainees’ Association of Ghana says their attention has been drawn to messages and audio recordings circulating on social media platforms which seems to create fear and panic about the whole NTC Portfolio process of the newly trained teachers and that it's members should remain calm.
In a statement on TTAG official Facebook page posted on Sunday 3rd October 2021, the Teacher Trainees Association said the portfolio assessment to be conducted by the National Teaching Council (NTC) has currently been suspended pending a new date for the process.
According to the Teachers Association of Ghana, the Teaching Council’s assessors will not be visiting the various schools of service of the newly trained teachers across the country at the scheduled date Monday, October 4, 2021.
“As it was earlier communicated through a communique, the assessors will not be coming until TTAG meets them the second time of which the date is not yet out,” the National Coordinator of TTAG, Joshua Yeboah said in the release.
The TTAG Coordinator added that pursuant to the above and information received from Mr Lawrence Sarpong, the Director for Professional Development of teachers (NTC), the assessment is on hold until further notice.
He consequently has entreated the public and trained teachers who will participate in the impending nationwide exercise to disregard any information circulating on social media about the NTC portfolio assessment not coming on.
In a related development, the Association of Ghana has also said it in due course will announce the date for the commencement of the new academic year for all the 46 public Colleges of Education (CoEs) in the country.
It Saturday disclosed stakeholders meeting September 29, 2021, was held to discuss issues affecting teacher trainees thus feeding the Component of the teacher trainees allowance, and the payment of the arrears of trainees allowance.
“Dr Eric Nkansah, Technical Advisor in charge of Tertiary Education (MoE), Mrs Sandra Amoah, Budget officer at GTEC, and Mr Jerry, Coordinator in charge of Colleges of Education (GTEC) were stakeholders engaged,” TTAG stated.
