History of TTAG

2010 TTAG

History of the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) 

Historically, teacher trainees organize agitations in the 1970s and early
The 1980s on grounds of fair treatment and recognition both by the
government and college authorities.

It is on record that in the 1970s, teacher trainees organize meetings
to petition the government when they felt threatened as a result of
their uncertainty about their status and qualification.

Again, there was a similar agitation fir the recognition of trainees
allowances in the early 1980s.

However, many beneficiaries of teachers of education afterwards
had a deep-seated conviction about what a union of teacher trainees
could do for its members and nation at large.

Many were of the view that even though the National Union of Ghana Students
(NUGS) existed, their focus was more on issues affecting
university students.

Many also agreed that teacher trainees need an association for the
the benefit of co-operation as expected in every human endeavour and
some teacher trainees welcomed the idea as a very important tool
whiles others were indifferent about the decision.

In the early 1990s teacher trainees forged to form the Teacher
Trainees‘ Association of Ghana (TTAG).

This attempt faced stiff opposition from college authorities. Some employed all kinds of
strategies before its germination. Apparently, their contention was
that such a union formed will make colleges of education, the then
teacher training college ungovernable.

This notwithstanding, as also said by Nathanael Greene that ―we
fight, we get beat, arise and fight again‖ between the end of the
1994/95 and the beginning of the 1995/96 academic year, the
the ground became fertile for the formation of TTAG.



Subsequently, the association was officially inaugurated
colourfully on 3rd February 1996 at the Presbyterian College of
Education by Mrs Elizabeth Addabor, the then director of Teacher
Education Division of the Ghana Education Service.

Mrs Addabor is equally on record to have offered her unflinching support to the
founding fathers of the association.
