The Ministry of Education (MoE) and the Ghana Education Service (GES) are setting up a special teachers portal for teachers to register their grievances on the platform, the Education Minister, Dr. Adutwum announced Friday.
Speaking at the Ghana teacher licensing and registration launch, Ghana’s Minister of Education said his outfit will assign case managers who will handle the issues to make sure that the complaints or cases are resolved.
“When they are resolved, there will be a dashboard for me to know that there was for instance a reduction of 20,000 complaints from Ashanti or other regions,” Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum told participants at the launch.
The teachers portal, he said will help him to remove the impediments of teachers and improve their welfare issues to do their job well.
The nationwide teacher licensing and registration numbers will commence for both public and private school teachers from Monday, May 17, 2021, in the Greater Accra Region and later in other regions in the country.
In a related development, the Education Ministry has established a union desk to address the concerns of members of the various teacher unions.
