The Ministry of Education (MoE) has said it is increasingly difficult to get physics and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) subject teachers to teach students in various Senior High Schools in the country.
A staff of the Education Ministry disclosed the current situation in the various Senior High Schools (SHSs) speaking on the Accra-based Peace 104.3 FM’s kokrokoo show monitored by Educationweb.com.gh.
His revelation comes after the Ghana Education Service (GES) was accused of recruiting non trained graduate teachers, a claim the Education Ministry debunked and saying “all graduates recruited are trained teachers”.
According to him universities like the University of Education (UEW), the University of Cape Coast (UCC), University for Development Studies (UDS) train over 14,000 graduate teachers a year for employment.
“However, it is increasingly difficult to find physics and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) subject teachers to teach students in secondary schools in the country”, he told host of Kokrokoo show.
The MoE official later in the interview admitted the fact that the Ghana Education Service (GES) service in some circumstance recruits non trained graduate teachers to fill vacancies for students to be thought.
