UPDATE ON NTTF ENGAGEMENT WITH THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE
We bring you warm greetings from the Newly Trained Teachers Forum (NTTF), The leadership of the newly Trained Teachers Forum has on 21st October, 2021 engaged the ministry of finance over the delay in financial clearance to recruit Newly Trained Teachers from Colleges Of Education.
Below were the outcome after the engagement.
THE DELAY OF FINANCIAL CLEARANCE
Upon thorough deliberation with the Deputy Minister of finance who is in charge of all financial clearance for employment, she made it clear that ministry of Education presented 40,093 names of persons to be recruited into GES which is more than the previous years’ figures. The 40,093 include Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff from College of Education and University graduates.
According to her, provisions are to be made to include all the said categories. Such provisions have not been finalised and that has caused the delay in the recruitment process.
ASSURANCE OF RECRUITMENT
The deputy minister of finance, Hon. Abena Asare Osei assured the NTTF Executives that NQT will be employed within this year (2021). Financial clearance will be issued in November and the process for NQTs recruitment will officially commence. As a result all NQT are to exercise patient as they do the necessary arrangements for the portal to be opened.
Not withstanding the delay in the recruitment process of the Newly Trained Teachers, the minister said NQTs are still the first priority of government when it comes to employing teachers into the classrooms. The Finance ministry and Ministry of Education had an engagement today and our recruitment issue was the topic for their discussion.
THE MINISTER’S PLEA
The minister plead to all newly Trained Teachers to accept postings to all places that their services are needed such as rural areas since those places are all part of Ghana and our services are mostly needed there.
5. THE MINISTER’S APPRECIATION
The minister appreciates our patience as we waited this long without resulting to demonstrations.
NTTF upon considering all the above wishes to entreat all members to wait calmly for all provisions to be made and our recruitment process to commence in the said November.
