The leadership of the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) has registered its displeasure with the management of the various Colleges of Education, across the country, for directing trainee teachers to pay an amount of GH¢ 370.00 as first semester examination fees.
This follows a directive from the University of Cape Coast (UCC), asking all final year students of Colleges of Education to pay a first-semester examination fee of GH¢370.
A statement issued by the TTAG leadership, Thursday, 15 September 2022, referring trainees to the letter, directed that they “halt payment of the GH¢370.00 indicated as the first-semester examination fee until further notice.”
It urged all local and sector executives of TTAG “to ensure first-semester year trainees adhere strictly to this directive until they hear from the National Secretariat on this issue.”
It also entreated “all students to remain resolute and count on its indefatigable leadership.”
