Direct Employment Has Been Your Greatest Achievement – Teacher Trainees To Prof. Naana Opoku Agyemang

A group calling itself the Ghana Trainee Teachers (GhTT) has described the appointment of Prof. Naana Opoku Agyemang as fortunate and very timing.

In a statement issued by the group on July 7, 2020, one of the greatest achievements of Prof. Naana Opoku Agyemang was the direct employment of the teacher trainees into the various public basic schools in the country.

Describing her as an astute academician and a humble woman of integrity with enviable proven track records in the education industry, the group said it was particularly happy about the emeralds she brings to table as an Educationist; a Former Minister of Education and Former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast.

”We, Ghana Trainee Teachers (GhaTT), write to express our deep-hearted enthusiasm for the nomination of Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyeman, an astute academician and a humble woman of integrity with enviable proven track records in the education industry.”

”We are particularly happy about the emeralds she brings to the table as an Educationist; a Former Minister of Education and Former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast.”

”As Trainee Teachers, we recount her fantastic work as a Sector Minister who ensured that all Trained Teachers from Colleges of Education were duly employed directly into the Ghana Education Service(GES). Unlike today, under Akufo-Addo, Qualified Trained Teachers are being forced to sit for Licensure Examination and also undergo a one-year national service only to be denied employment afterwards.” The group said.

”In the Teacher Education fraternity alone, we can add to Prof. Opoku-Agyeman’s achievements as the Minister of Education who increased Trainee Teachers enrollment from 9000 to 15500 annually, added eight new colleges of education, ensured all colleges of education benefited from GETFund projects such as hostels, dining halls, teachers’ flat etc.”

”Some of the eight new colleges include; St. Ambrose College of Education at Dormaa Akwamu, Al Faruq College of Education at Wenchi, Bia Lamplighter College of Education at Bia, Methodist College of Education, Akim Oda, SDA College of Education at Agona in Ashanti Region, McCoy College of Education in Wa, Gambaga College of Education in Tamale”

NAPO factor

”Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the Matthew Opoku-Prempeh led the ministry of education as it had introduced the obnoxious licensure examination and national service. Painfully, the Akufo-Addo led government denies newly Trained teachers employment after going through this stress.” the group acknowledged.

”With Professor Naana as Vice President of the Republic, we believe the Licensure Examination and National Service would be cancelled and more importantly, automatic recruitment of teachers would be restored.” the group envisaged.
