Teacher Trainees Heartbreaking Message to Government
Teacher Trainees Heartbreaking Message to Government

The TTAG has made notices with grave concerns, about the Industrial Action to be undertaken by the CETAG and CENTSAG effective, November 14, 2022. Let’s spot the negative impacts of CETAG – CENTSAG strike action.

As student teachers, we believe the ripple effect of industrial action has dire consequences for us now and the future of our country.

Negative Impacts of CETAG – CENTSAG Strike Action

With these current happenings, we cannot realistically perish the thought of trainees’ susceptibility to some displeasing past on the basis that;

  • Continuing Students have advanced with the semester’s academic work and are on the verge of sitting for their exams.
  • The shift/track system which has come to bare as a result of infrastructural deficit in colleges, causing some year groups to stay home while others are engaged for a period of time, will yield no positive results; A prima face evidence could be cited in the case of the level 300s in some past months.
  • The health of the students cannot be gainsaid in this conversation in terms of the quality of food trainees will be feeding on and in the worst-case scenario where Colleges are situated on the outskirt of towns/cities, issues of insecurity pitches in.

In the spirit of true service to the ordinary trainee, and the joint quest for quality and progressive teacher education in our country, we wish to state that:

  • The actors for and on behalf of the government should, as a matter of urgency, attend to the calls
    of CETAG and CENTSAG.
  • We take due cognizance of the concerns of CETAG and CENTSAG but to aid in solving the same, we ask that, the leadership of the two striking bodies puts the interest and welfare of the student teachers at the center of every discussion.
  • We understand Fair Wages and Salaries Commission has a pivotal role in finding resolutions and bringing sanity to this issue hence we humbly appeal that measures are expedited with effect.
  • We equally call on GTEC and PRINCOF to pitch in to help resolve this impasse.

To this end, we want to admonish all our fellow trainees to remain resolute and continue to stay safe as the leadership works all means within its capacity to help safeguard the interest of its membership.
