College of education graduates who were denied postings despite having met the requirements for postings, teamed up and stormed the Ministry of education to demand for Jobs on 25th November, 2019. The aggrieved College graduates said the ministry failed to fulfill its promise to address their grievances.
The graduates who comprised of mostly of the 2017 college year batch claimed they have been home for two years awaiting their posting but the Ministry failed them and give excuses always.
The graduates carried out a similar exercise some time ago but were lulled into calling it off with the promise that the issue will be addressed. But nothing has been done about the situation since.
One of the aggrieved teachers said, “we are not going anywhere till they post us… We’ve done everything they asked us to do. We have our license, certificate from our Colleges of Education and national service certificate. This is all it takes for us to be posted.”
According to the graduates, despite graduating from the various Colleges of Education, they are yet to be posted.
Some said they have been home for two years, while others also complained of being ignored despite completing their national service and being duly licensed.
“We are not going anywhere till they post us… We’ve done everything they asked us to do. We have our license, certificate from our Colleges of Education and national service certificate. This is all it takes for us to be posted,” an aggrieved teacher told Accra-based Citi FM.
The unemployed graduate teachers said they do not understand why their juniors have been posted while they still remain jobless.
This comes after the Ghana Education Service (GES) recently announced that it has begun the process of posting teachers who completed the Colleges of Education in 2018.
The GES outlined two requirements that need to be met in order to make a teacher eligible for employment.
They Education Service said one must write and pass the teacher licensure examination, and must also have completed their national service.
Prior Promises By GES
