Teacher trainees to start feeding themselves effective monday – PRINCOF

Conference of Principals of Colleges of Education (PRINCOF) has officially written to the Ministry of Finance to seek for approval to ask students of Colleges of Education in the country to fend for themselves.

According to PRINCOF,  students are expected to fend for themselves effective Monday November 7, 2022 if approval is granted.

From the management of PRINCOF, it have been trying really very hard to feed trainee teachers in recent times as a result of current market trends. However, Prices of all food items have shot up astronomically, and food suppliers have refused to supply any food items to Colleges because of the indebtedness of Colleges to these suppliers.

A request for an upward review of the
feeding grant paid to Principals has not been approved, and it has therefore become
increasingly difficult for Principals to continue to provide three meals a day to students at Six Cedis, Fifty Pesewas (C6.50).

In the light of the above, it is the wish of PRINCOF to be given permission to ask students to start fending for themselves. This is to ensure that the already stretched academic year is not disrupted.
