Teacher Trainees in the Public Colleges of Education have shown their displeasure towards the Students Loan Trust Fund (SLTF) managers over the continuous delay in the payment of their monthly allowances.
The trainees said the delay without justifications is causing a lot of challenges for them financially whilst on campus as well as off-campus for the Blending Learning System.
”The whole of last semester, we never received our allowances and this is what most trainees depend on for fees and purchasing of study materials amongst others.” A trainee teacher said in an interview with EducationGhana’s Ellis Ferdinand.
”You could imagine the stress we endured without the allowance last semester through to vacations and school resumes May 8 and nothing better from Government or other stakeholders have been communicated to us till date.” The trainee lamented.
SLTF on the delay of Allowances
The Students Loan Trust Fund Ghana (SLTF) has attributed the delay of teacher trainees allowance to the transitional process currently ongoing at the various Ministries of the government including the Finance Ministry.
This was contained in a statement released by the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) to address students on the delay in the payment of their monthly allowances.
The changes comes after President Nana Akufo-Addo last year won the December 2020 general elections thus permitting him to govern the Republic of Ghana for the second time after he first won the 2016 election.
But, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Students Loan Trust Fund has said the trainee’s monthly allowance including arrears would be disbursed when the allocated funds are given out by the Ministry of Finance.
