Cost Sharing

According to the NTC, a meeting between its outfit and the Teacher Unions have concluded that though the Ghc200 was reasonable for the licensing fee, the cost should be shared amongst the Ghana Education Service (GES) as an Employer, and the In-Service Teachers as Employees.

The cost-sharing implies, the GES shall pay Ghc100 whilst the Teachers pay Ghc100, of which the teachers are expected to pay their portion from their annual Teacher Professional Development Allowances of Ghc1200  for Professional Teachers and Ghc600 for Non-Professional Teachers.
