Accra, April 18, GNA – Members of the College of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) have appealed to government to expedite action on the tertiary status of the Colleges of Education.
A communiquÃ© issued by the National Council of CETAG at a meeting in Kumasi and signed by Mr Nkyi Asamoah, National Secretary, commended the Ministry of Education for holding two meetings with CETAG over its migration to the National Council for Tertiary Education from the Ghana Education Service.
It said since 2004, tutors of the College of Education have been training holders of Diploma Certificates for basic schools, but are not receiving the remunerations that goes with the job.
It said Parliament passed the Colleges of Education Act, 2012, Act 847, and was accented by the late President John Evans Atta Mills and duly gazetted.
The communiquÃ© said government is yet to implement the act.
CETAG is therefore calling on the government to expedite action on implementing the act.
