Without mincing words, we, the TTAG would want to state that, the feeding of teacher trainees should continue unabatedly.

It is imperative to add that the leadership has fervently, in the past and presently tabled before the actors for and on behalf of the government as well as other stakeholders on the dire need for an upward review and the consistent release of the feeding fee to the colleges of education, especially in these times of hikes in prices of food items.

We wish to appeal to the Ministry of Education and GTEC as well as our other stakeholders to expedite steps in addressing this issue and subsequently the release of funds for the payment of outstanding months of trainees’ allowances.

Consequently, as a leader who is willful and ever ready to champion the interest of student teachers, we want to entreat our dear constituents to exercise calm as we actively engage stakeholders on this for a soothing headway to prevent the obstruction of academic work and subsequently the academic calendar of colleges of education.
