The Education Ministry has set the records straight on why some teachers who have completed various Colleges of Education have still not received their postings.
The Education Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Ekow Vincent Assifuah has explained that the said teachers could not be posted because they fall outside the Ministry’s budget that was approved for the 2018 fiscal year.
“These postings are mainly for the 2018 teacher trainees who have successfully passed their licensure exams; have been licensed and have completed their national service,” he explained.
He explained that should any of the trainees fall within the category, and as a result, didn’t receive their postings, they may lodge a formal complaint with their respective Regional Directorates.
“We need their [teachers] services because we have quite a number of spaces to fill and as at now, almost 16,000 teacher trainees have been posted so they should keep calm,” he urged.
He added that all issues and irregularities with the postings will be addressed in due time.
Scores of trained teachers who have not been posted after graduating from various Colleges of Education on Monday were at the Ministry of Education to demand answers to why they haven’t been posted.

The teachers say they completed their national service in 2017 and have also been duly licensed since 2018 and are therefore calling on the government through the Ghana Education Service to engage them.
