The Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) following the postponement of teacher training continuing students reopening date says the date for fresh Colleges of Education students to report to campus has not been postponed.
TTAG speaking to EducationWeb.com.gh said the first-year students to be admitted into any of the public 46 Colleges of Education will report to school on January 8, 2021, to start the 2021/2022 academic year as earlier communicated.
The Teachers Association indicated the continuing students of the public Colleges of Education were to report to campus on November 7, 2021, to start academic activities but the reopening date has been extended to January 2022.
“The postponement of the public Colleges of Education reopening date applies to only continuing students, the date for fresh students to report to school has not been changed, it still remains January 8, 2021,” TTAG told EducationWeb.
In a related development, the Principals of Colleges of Education (PRINCOF) has directed the Management of the 46 public Colleges of Education (CoE) to suspend the release of the 2021/2022 admission list until further notice.
A source familiar with the teacher training institutions admission list Monday said the reason for the delay in the release of the Colleges of Education admission supposed to be released on Sunday, October 31, 2021, is unknown.
“PRINCOF directs all Colleges of Education to put the publication of their admission list on hold until further notice. It is yet to be known the reason behind the hold-up,” the source told EducationWeb’s Okyere Darko George.
The Minister for Education, Dr Adutwum following the release of the list has urged Authorities of Colleges of Education to ensure fresh students admission do not exceed numbers that were admitted in the 2019/2020 academic year.
