Post Newly Trained Teachers now to prevent mass protest; TTAG tells GES

According to the leadership of the Association, “Information reaching us indicates that a number of trainees have not been posted or are facing challenges accessing their postings. We are pleased however to note that the Ghana Education Service (GES) has opened its email ddress (

) for the affected people to send their details to enable them get posted. It is our hop that they will be posted as soon as possible after receiving their required redentials.

In paragraph four line two of the offer of appointment letters to the recruited teachers, it was stated “You will be on one (1) year probation during which period, you would be assesed for confirmation”. Leadership is shocked to note this in the letter due to the fact that, we have been made aware from 2018 that the one year National Service shall also serve as induction and probation period. We believe this may be an oversight from the end of GES and hence call on GES and NTC to address this concern. We also urge affected victims to remain calm and optimistic for an amicable resolution of their problems.
