We bring to you our warmest greetings from the National Secretariat of the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG).
The leadership on 7th and 8th October, 2021 engaged officials of the office of Human Resource and Management Development of the Ghana Education Service and the Registrar of the National Teaching Council respectively. Issues discussed included the portfolio assessment of Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs), the Licensure Examination, and the opening of the portal for the recruitment of Newly Trained Teachers.

PORTFOLIO ASSESSMENT OF THE NEWLY QUALIFIED TEACHERS.
As it was communicated earlier to the general public on leadership’s re-engagement with the Registrar for the National Teaching Council on the aforementioned issue, the Registrar acknowledged receipt of the petition written to him by the leadership after its first engagement.
He informed the leadership on the need for the portfolio assessment to be done before recruitment since it has great impact in the professional development of a teacher, but for the
concerns raised by the leadership, he agreed to withhold the assessment until newly qualified teachers are recruited. He further stated, emphatically, that no NOT will get a permanent teaching certificate if he or she fails to do the portfolio assessment after recruitment.
