The Statement


In a statement released by the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) on April 14, 2020, suggested to the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) that with the issue regarding how to get all students involved equally, learning experiences should be created to cater for all spectrum of students.



Earlier Meeting On The Virtual Learning Platform


The trainees, in an earlier meeting with the leadership of the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) on April 8, 2020 discussed the virtual learning platform to be rolled out in the Colleges of Education amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic that led to the closure of all educational institutions in Ghana to contain the spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The virtual meeting which also involved the leadership of the Transforming Teacher Education and Learning (T-TEL) discussed among other things,including the challenges associated with the closure of schools, the virtual learning platform as well as microsite update, which is an online learning platform which shall allow the students to access online materials faster and easier.

The trainees requested that perhaps, a dedicated Television Channel should be dedicated to the teaching and learning experiences in the Colleges of Education.

In addition, the leadership suggested, that WhatsApp, Google Classroom and other virtual platforms can be used to access Education Information.

With the High Cost of data bundles, the TTAG suggested, that the NCTE and other stakeholders should meet with the telecommunication networks to subsidize the cost of data, or zero-rate it for educational materials to be easily accessible.

The trainees’ leadership also suggested that all materials meant for their lessons should be downloadable to cut cost.



  1. Greater portion of newly posted teachers in Accra don’t have the staff I’d and as a result are not recognized by CAGD for them to be paid their salary since 4months of teaching.The new teachers are suffering with hunger while staying at home fighting covid- 19 and paying their rents and utilities.We need your help so that the info can get to them and I’m sure they will release the remaining ids when they get the info for us to do the biometric and get paid.

  2. I suggest that intensive tests must be done on students who will report back to school for the second semester on the day of the re-opening. I think this will also help us they also practise the social distancing with it. Thank you.

  3. Please also the newly posted teachers from the various colleges of education in the past four months and now in the fifth month, most of them have neither had their staff IDs nor done their biometric registration. Please this comment may not be needed here but we want you to also help us so that this info will reach the appropriate authorities
