EducationGhana| July 23| TTAG President lists 4 reasons why Teacher Trainees need Allowances:
The president of the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana 9TTAG) has listed four strong points to defend the need to pay teacher trainees allowances in the Colleges of Education.
President Dzunu Jonathan made this revelation in a speech delivered at the 26th General Assembly of the Association held at the St Francis College of Education on July 22, 2022.

His comments came as a result of the government not paying teacher trainees allowance as for seven months.
‘We, therefore, want to appeal passionately that utmost priority should be attached to the payment of teacher trainees’ allowance on the premise that:
1. The scheme was instituted to serve as motivation and attraction to students with the passion to teach despite the fact that it is an underpaid profession.
2. The allowance has served as a poverty alleviation intervention over the years in the sense that, families who cannot afford the exorbitant fees of other tertiary institutions in the country have had a last resort to send their wards to colleges of education in their bid to have their lives transformed and made better by these wards.
A lot of poor families save for a long time and some even sell family lands and other valuable properties in an attempt to pay the high admission fees of the Colleges but with an assurance that the allowance would later cushion their wards to complete the colleges successfully.
3. Teacher trainees depend greatly on the allowance for their teaching and learning materials, feeding, examination fees, and hand-outs, among others.
4. The allowance as well cushions teacher trainees undergoing teaching practice in basic schools within surrounding communities of the colleges to pay for their accommodation, and utility bills, just to mention but a few.

”Madam Chairperson, it is my candid appeal that the delays by the government in the payment of allowances be looked at more closely and the cost of the action counted.”
”Teacher trainees and members of the teaching profession should not always be made to suffer anytime there are budgetary constraints in the country.” He said.
