Teachers and Trainees Advocacy (TTA) has asked government to either release or justify delayed posting of some 2018 trained teachers of colleges of education.

The fate of the newly trained teachers who presumably qualify and yet not posted are in uncertainty.

Out of about 14,500 fresh teachers, about 13,500 have been successfully posted of which their employment took effect from December 1, 2019.

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.

In a statement issued on Monday and jointly signed by Antwi Karikari Patrick and Bernard Sao, National Convener-TTA, and Director of publicity respectively, re-echoed that the frustration and worrying state of these fateless trained teachers are immeasurable.

“Through this release, TTA, as an interested party in issues of our education sector, humbly request the Ghana Education Service who is their direct employer and all relevant stakeholders, to rectify all technical and administrative challenges and release the posting of such remaining distressed qualified teachers as soon as possible.

“On the other hand, if there are justifiable reasons for the delayed posting of these fresh teachers, we call on GES to, in no time, come out and explain to them as well as the general public.

“In as much as we understand they are the minority, we hold the view that without any cause, they deserve to be posted as their colleagues have been.”
