The Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) says it will October 7, 2021, engage the Human Resource and Management Development Director of the Ghana Education Service (GES) on newly trained teachers postings.
TTAG in a communique sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh said it will after the engagement with the Resource and Management Development Director (GES) update members of the public and trained teachers on the postings.
“The leadership had also scheduled to have another engagement with the Human Resource and Management Development Director (GES) on 7th October 2021 to get an update on the postings,” the Association stated.
The Director-General of the GES, Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa has said a special motivational package will be given to teachers who have been posted to remote areas where vacancies are available and services are needed.
According to the Director-General, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has partnered with the World Bank to support and enhance the standard of teaching and the lives of both students and teachers in remote areas.
He said the partners introduced the Ghana Accountability for Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP) to support the implementation of the Government’s Education Sector Plan (ESP) with a focus on basic education.
“Approximately 10,000 poorly performing public basic schools, which represents approximately one-half of basic schools are expected to benefit from the GALOP learning interventions,” he said in an interview.
Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, the Vice-Chairman of WAEC Council admitted that the Ghana Education Service (GES) sometimes posts prospective teachers who did not select such regions or remote areas to teach students.
“So because we do such postings under GALOP, we will give the newly posted teachers some motivational package for them to teach well, yes so we will motivate them,” the GES staff told the host of UTV’s Mpu ne Mpu show.
