The leadership of the Association, in a statement released by the Association 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.

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.
