The Ministry of Education has urged the public to disregard publications making rounds about the non-recruitment of 2018 Colleges of Education graduates into service after their national service and passing teacher licensure exams.
MoE’s Deputy spokesman, Yaw Opoku Mensah reacting to the allegation said a notice for the said year group recruitment was given on October 20, 2019, and eligible candidates were shortlisted for posting in November 2019.
Mr Yaw said an opportunity was also given to both 2017 and 2018 CoE graduates who were later qualified for recruitment for them to apply through the GES portal of recruitment after satisfying the requirements needed by GES
“GES again in July 2020 notified CoE graduates who completed in 2017 & 2018 but were not qualified for recruitment at the time of the exercise to join the profession by applying through the GES recruitment portal,” he stated in a post.
The Ministry’s spokesperson in the post sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh said as his outfit and the Ghana Education Service as part of the government transformational agenda are committed to filling every classroom with a teacher.
In a related development, the Education Service has the portal for the recruitment of newly trained teachers will be opened depending on the academic calendar of basic schools and financial clearance from the government.
The Office of Human Resource and Management Development of GES Thursday told the leadership of the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) they are working hard to secure financial clearance for the recruitment
