Ferdinand| EducationGhana | December 06 |Newly Trained Teachers to enjoy TTAG membership for one year after college

The Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) has released Constitutional Instrument (CI) for the 2022 Reviewed Constitution. The Consitution was reviewed from 2016 to 2022 under the chairmanship of Oscar Kofi Agbo, a former Chairman of the Judicial Committee of the Associaton.

The CI on the Colossal Review of the TTAG Constitution was presented to an Extra Ordinary General Assembly held at the SDA College of Education, Asokore-Koforidua on December 4, 2022.

The Association saw the need to have a new Constitution which is dynamic enough to satisfy the changing trends of TTAG which is evident today, where some provisions in the Constitution have outlived their essence while other legal and administrative inputs which the dynamism of the Association had warranted over the years had no Constitutional
Provisions to that effect.

The Committee was tasked to do a colossal review of the TTAG Constitution.

As a prerequisite and for the purpose of coordination, the Committee adopted a consultative approach in its operations, this it did by consulting with a broad spectrum of students and individuals in their official or private capacities as the case may be, the prime consideration being the contribution they can make to this all-important exercise towards the attainment of a more consecrated Constitution for the Association.

The Committee accepted only written submissions from the TTAG fraternity. Such opinions were carefully examined and analyzed. Where there was the need of asking anyone to come in person before the committee in order to explain, elaborate or clarify any point in their written submission, the committee extended such invitations.

However, for the benefit of those that did not get the opportunity to intercept the hardcopy of the TTAG Constitution, a softcopy was attached to a notice sent to the trainee fraternity to seek for their views and ideas before the commencement of work.

All proposals were forwarded to the Committee via the email address:
[email protected].

The Committee has made briefings and presentations on the document to the statutory bodies of the Association i.e., the National Executive Council, the Judicial Committee and the General Assembly.

Chapter Three

This chapter deals with the membership of the Association. One review made is for TTAG to
recognize every student from a College of Education in Ghana which is approved by TTAG and the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC) (not the Ghana Education Service) to be a member of TTAG.

In addition, every teacher trainee shall continue to enjoy full membership of
TTAG for one year after completion of the programme.

This chapter also made provisions for Associate Members without any change. The
establishment of the Council of Patrons is well structured with supplementary provisions including making them an Advisory Board of the TTAG.

This provision also describes the characteristics and credentials one must possess to qualify as a Patron. PRINCOF, CETAG, NAGRAT, CCT-Gh and TEWU have been included as affiliates to TTAG for the Association not to exist in isolation.
