EducationGhana| April 20| Principals order Teacher Trainees to begin Feeding themselves from May 8 over the government’s failure to pay feeding grants:

The National Conference of Principals of Colleges of Education – Ghana (PRINCOF) has directed that teacher trainees start to fund their own feeding from May 8.

This directive is in response to the inability of Colleges of Education to make payments for food items supplied to them.

According to PRINCOF, food suppliers who had continued delivering supplies to the Colleges of Education for months without payment have finally withdrawn their services till they receive the monies owed them.

“Most Colleges now have food items that can last only one week if students are to be provided with three (3) meals a day,” PRINCOF said in a letter to the Education Minister.

Consequently, PRINCOF has suggested that:

“Trainee teachers will be provided with two meals, breakfast and supper only for one week, from April 23 to April 30, 2022.

“Trainee teachers from May 1 to May 8, 2022, shall be given lunch only.

“After May 8, trainee teachers would be asked to provide their own meals until their feeding allowances have been paid,” it said.

Meanwhile, food vendors are being encouraged to increase the number of daily meals they cook for sale to students.

“These measures are meant to ensure that there is no disruption of the academic calendar,” the letter concluded.

THE HON. MINISTER OF EDUCATION MINISTRY OF EDUCATION ACCRA
THROUGH:
THE DIRECTOR-GENERAL
GHANA TERTIARY EDUCATION COMMISSION (GTEC) ACCRA
Dear Sir,
FEEDING FEES ARREARS AND MATTERS ARISING
The Conference of Principals of Colleges of Education (PRINCOF) has, for a couple of months now, been inundated with complaints from suppliers about the inability of Colleges of Education to make payments for food items supplied.
In spite of the fact that prices of food items have gone up and a request from PRINCOF for an upward review of students’ feeding fees. payable to Principals has not been approved yet, PRINCOF has still managed to provide some quality meals, three times a day, for students.
It has now come to a point where suppliers have backed their threats of not supplying any food items to Colleges with concrete action by not supplying Colleges with any food items until they have been paid the money owed them.
Most Colleges now have food items that can last only one week if students are to be provided with three (3) meals a day.
To this end, and in order that the 2021/2022 academic year, which is already very tight, is not disrupted, PRINCOF has come up with the schedule below, which it feels would help keep students on campus:
1. Trainee Teachers will be provided with two meals, breakfast and supper only, for one week, from April 23 to April 30, 2022.
2. Trainee Teachers, from May 1 to May 8, 2022, shall be given lunch only.
3. After May 8, Trainee teachers would be asked to provide their own meals until their feeding allowances have been paid.
4. Food vendors will be encouraged to increase the number of daily meals they cook for sale to students,
These measures are meant to ensure that there is no disruption of the academic calendar.
Counting very much on your anticipated support.
Yours faithfully,
Dr Harriet Naki Amui
(Executive Secretary- PRINCOF)

President of Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG)
