Loan defaulters delaying disbursements – Students Loan Trust Fund

The Students Loan Trust Fund (SLTF) has apologised to students across the country over the delay in 2019/20 disbursement of loans.

A statement signed by the Senior Public Relations Manager of SLTF, George Ferguson Laing, said the delay is due to the inability of the Fund to recover funds from borrowers

He noted that the Fund recognised that tens of thousands of students relied on the loans for various uses, including the payment of fees but it is working assiduously to restore the situation to normalcy.

DELAY IN DISBURSEMENT OF STUDENT LOANS

The Students Loan Trust Fund (SLTF), would like to acknowledge calls from some student groups for speedier disbursement of loans for the 2019/2020 academic year.

We would like to place the following on record:

1. We recognize that students in over 100 tertiary institutions across the country rely on student loans for various uses, including the payment of fees, accommodation, and the purchase of books as well as general living expenses. We are working assiduously to restore the situation to normalcy.

2. From the beginning of the academic year, the SLTF has been disbursing loans to students in batches. The challenge is that the Trust Fund has not been able to pay all beneficiaries at the same time.

3. Currently, the main sources of funding for the Fund are receipts from the GETFUND, Communications Service Tax and repayments from beneficiaries of the Fund. For some time now, the Fund has been forced to rely heavily on recovered loans to disburse to students. This is due to delays in the release of funds from the other sources. As a result, the Fund has employed various strategies to recover funds from borrowers. Much as our recovery strategies have been successful, funds recovered are not adequate to disburse to all students at a go.

4. We continue to engage with the relevant stakeholders including the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Finance and the GETFUND to make financing available to pay students as soon as possible.

5. Over the past few days, the management of the Fund has met with various student groups, including executives of the National Union of Ghana Students, the University Students Association of Ghana, the Ghana Union of Professional Students and the Private University Students Association of Ghana. In our meetings with student leadership, we have explained the challenges we face with them, and urged them to continue to exercise restraint as Government works to resolve the issues.

6. We look forward to completing payments to our beneficiaries for the 2019/2020 academic year very soon.

How A Teacher Uses Mobile Phone To Teach ICT

The Assistant Head Teacher of Bosuso D/A JHS at Fanteakwa South District in the Eastern Region, has been using his mobile phone to teach Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

Bosuso D/A JHS

Reagan Antwi told DAILY GUIDE that he used to teach the children from his laptop but it broke down and as a result, had to use his Samsung phone to impart ICT knowledge to the students.

He said the students were failing in the ICT subject due to lack of computers in the school.

He said the school was more than 100 years old but they were really facing challenges such as no ICT laboratory, school library and even electricity to power the place to ensure smooth learning.

He said they had written letters to the district education office as well as the MP for the area but they were yet to get positive feedback concerning the challenges the students and teachers were facing.

He said that Bosuso D/A JHS, was the basic school that Arko Adjei of the Big Six fame attended.

The teacher called on the government, NGOs and philanthropists to come to their aid to help solve the challenges facing the school.

E-learning programme for SHS students begins

The African Business Centre for Developing Education (ABCDE), in partnership with Vivo Energy Ghana, has commenced a nationwide electronic learning (e-learning) programme aimed at encouraging students in second cycle institutions to explore e-learning options to augment the traditional classroom and textbook learning.

The initiative would see about 500,000 senior high school (SHS) students across the country getting access to e-learning materials by the end of the year.
For a start, about 500 students from Achimota School in Accra were signed onto a digital education platform known as eCampus.

The 500 students, comprising 300 females and 200 males, would have access to trial tests on their courses of study in order to assess their strengths and weaknesses.

They would also have access to textbooks in digital formats at a subscription fee paid for by Vivo Energy Ghana.

Launch

At the launch of the project last Friday at the Achimota School as part of activities to mark this year’s International Day of Education on January 24, the

Chairman of ABCDE, Mr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, said there was the need for digital learning to be inculcated in students in second cycle institutions.

“Education in the coming years will no longer be blackboard education where students need to go to classrooms to be taught. Very soon, education will be self-educating where digital platforms will lecture students and we need to prepare the students for that future.”

Private involvement

Mr Spio-Garbrah, a former Minister of Education, called on companies in the private sector to get involved in the training of students in second-cycle and tertiary institutions.

That, he believed, would help produce graduates that are fit for the job market.

The private sector should get involved at an early stage in the training of the students because they always complain that the students that are coming out do not meet their purposes.

They must come and help us define the curriculum, help train teachers, motivate students and give them internship opportunities to make them good enough for the job market.” he stated.

Digitisation 

The Founder of eCampus, Mr Cecil Nutakor, stressed the need for government to digitise educational content for students, saying “it saves cost and makes learning easier and effective for students.”

“Providing educational contents such as past questions for students is a great initiative but producing them in paperbacks is not the best.

They can get torn easily. Digitisation of learning materials would save us a lot of money as a country.

It makes it easier to preserve and update.

We need to digitise our educational content if we want to get ahead as a people.” he indicated.

Girls In STEM

The Corporate Communications Manager of Vivo Energy Ghana, Mrs Shirley Tony Kum, urged the students, especially females, to venture into the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) related subjects at the higher levels of learning.

“The oil and gas industry is one of the key sectors that heavily depends on STEM.

STEM education is of great importance to us and we want to see many young girls providing cutting-edge business solutions that meet the needs of consumers and contribute to the socio-economic development of our country,” she indicated

University of Education, Winneba admits more females

For the first time in the history of the University of Education Winneba (UEW), it has admitted more females than males under its distance education programme.

Vice Chancellor of the  University of Education Winneba, Rev. Fr Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni

At the 2019/2020 matriculation ceremony held at its College of Technology, Kumasi Campus, the female population constituted 59 per cent out of an undergraduate population of 11,231.

Out of the figure, the female matriculants were 6,669 while the males were 4,562.

The Vice Chancellor of the university, Rev. Fr Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni, who announced this at this year’s matriculation ceremony for distance education students, said despite the increase in intake of female students, their male counterparts still dominated at the graduate level.

Out of a total of 1,086 admissions for the graduate programmes, 730, representing 67 per cent, were males while 356, representing 33 per cent, were females.

Mentoring

The VC announced that the university had been granted the privilege of mentoring about one-third of all the colleges of education in Ghana “even though there are six of us public universities approved by the Ministry of Education to perform this national assignment”.

The recently adjudged fastest growing university and the largest populated university in the country with a total population of 85,004, the UEW remains the first to start a distance education programme.

Rev. Fr Prof. Afful-Broni said the university had launched an ambitious five-year corporate strategic plan (2019-2023) to fully transform the College of Technology (Kumasi campus) as it got near the completion stage to become an autonomous university.

“This document (the plan) has received excellent commendations from across the world,” he said.

Facilities

The VC said the Winneba campus had completed the construction of four modern lecture theatres, each with a seating capacity of 500.

“Six more will be completed within a few months, having started at the tail end of 2019,” he said as the university put in place measures to welcome the first batch of Free SHS graduates.

Warning

The VC warned against examination malpractice, saying although most of the students were workers, it did not give them the right to cheat during exams.

He said any student caught engaging in examination malpractice would be sacked and prosecuted while lecturers found to have assisted such students would be dismissed outright.

UG Political Science Department releases findings on MMDCEs’ performance

The Political Science Department of the University of Ghana has released findings of a survey it conducted on the performance of the country’s Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs).

Presenting the findings at a press conference on Tuesday, senior lecturer at the University, Alexander Kaakyire Frempong noted that only 19.3% out of the over 27,000 respondents sampled said they knew the selection process for MMDCEs.

According to Mr Frempong, the data proves the level of apathy shown by a majority of constituents towards local government issues.

“Of the 60.5% of the entire respondents who said they knew [the processes for selecting MMDCEs], only 38% of them got it right. So, they were able to say they are nominated by the President and approved by the assembly. But if we take this percentage over the entire number of respondents, it will be only 19.3% of the respondents who actually knew correctly how MMDCEs are appointed,” he said.

Explaining further, Mr Frempong said about 30% of the respondents said the MMDCEs were appointed by only the President while another 30% said the staff of the assemblies chose their MMDCEs.

Others also said the MMDCEs were appointed by the chiefs of the community.

He further noted that their research revealed tension of varying degrees between Members of Parliament (MPs) and MMDCEs.

He said the tension if left unresolved could stifle sustainable local government.

“There are risks associated with the MMDCEs and MPs’ acrimonies for the delivery of public rules for the people. It is therefore not surprising that a large majority, 75%, of those who attested to the prevalence of tensions say it has affected the performance of their MMDCEs. To some extent about only 5.3% was insistent there was no such relationship, others were not sure. The important point is that if these conflicts remain unresolved it will potentially stifle sustainable development,” he cautioned.

The research conducted in 2017 and 2019 saw 27,500 respondents answering questions in relation to the appointment of MMDCEs, MMDCEs as influential actors, Members of Parliament, communities and developmental projects, performance of MMDCEs and 2020 Presidential elections among others.

The survey which was conducted in 275 Constituencies was on the theme: “Assessment of the Performance of MMDCEs from the Perspective of the Constituents.”

The survey also identified irregular interaction between the MMDCEs in their communities, describing the trend as a “worrying situation”.

Additionally, the acrimonies between MMDCEs and MPs for the delivery of public goods ought to be resolved to avert the stifling of sustainable local development, the report noted.

The survey also revealed that Party Constituency Chairpersons were seen as the most influential on the MMDCEs with Chiefs having a cordial relationship with MMDCEs.

NAB Conducts Institutional Review Of Valley View University

The National Accreditation Board (NAB) has embarked on a review of the programmes and operations of Valley View University (VVU), the first private chartered tertiary education institution in Ghana.

NAB Conducts Institutional Review Of Valley View University

The exercise was to ascertain if they were conforming to required quality standards and improvements.

As part of the review process, members of NAB, led by Prof. Kwame Boasiako Omane-Antwi held discussions with the leadership, faculty and administrative personnel of the institution.

The meeting with the University authorities was to find out about its quality of teaching and learning, student-lecturer relationship and more. They also inspected the library, labs, workshops and hostels of VVU.

Further, the NAB team interacted with students to have an appreciation of their concerns to ensure that such challenges are adequately addressed in record time.

The Executive Secretary of NAB, Dr. Kingsley Nyarko indicated that the institution was not doing poorly commending them for supporting its teaching faculty to obtain terminal degrees.

He added that NAB would in the coming days write a comprehensive report about its findings for the university to act on.

“We looked at the issues that we thought were important for teaching and learning, and we made our observations known to the University authorities. What we are going to do is to go back, and send them a comprehensive report for them to look at,” Dr. Nyarko stressed.

He added, “there will be issues that have to be addressed but in all, we need to ensure that quality standards are adhered to” as it was necessary to produce quality human resource for the development of the country.

Professor Daniel Kwame Bediako, Vice-Chancellor of VVU expressed the University’s appreciation to NAB and indicated that management had taken note of the findings of the Institutional Review team.

He assured the Review team that the University will immediately take steps to re-enforce the areas where the institution has been commended and take remedial action to address deficiencies identified, even before the final report reaches the University.

Other members of the Review team were Prof. Juventus Ziem, Prof B.Y.Quarshie and Prof Mohammed Salifu.

A Sad Accident that happens to the Adaklu SHS

Adaklu SHS Bus Crashes A Tree; No Casualties

Some Staff and students of Adaklu SHS got involved in a near-fatal accident on the poor Abuadi–Waya road.

The incident which occurred when the school’s contingent was returning to campus after participating in the 63rd National Independence Day inter-District competition held at Sokode Senior High Technical school (Ho) on 23rd January 2020.

There were no casualties according to reports from the accident scene.

Narrating the incident, a victim who was on board the vehicle stated that the steering wheel of the bus Miraculously got stuck and the brakes failed as well and If not for the high professionalism displayed by the school’s celebrated driver, Mr. Emmanuel Ashilevi, lives would have been lost.

Upon hearing the news, The Headmaster of the School, Mr. Batholomew Hosu and the District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area, Hon. Phanuel Kadey Donkor, an active good friend of the school, rushed to the scene of the accident and conveyed them to the Adaklu Waya Health Center for treatment.

The School Prefect, Master Richard Sokpor bemoaned the fact that the school bus is the only means of transport for the school which is now damaged beyond repairs.

He, therefore, called on all stakeholders and government to come to the aid of the school in procuring a new, bigger and better bus for the school as the school is left with no means of transport for the students.

NVTI Roles Out Special Programs For Returnee’s Migrants

The National Vocational Training Institute has rolled out a (training) program in eleven 11 Skill areas targeted at the Returnees from the Diaspora and Potential Migrants.

NVTI believes that a skilled nation will not have a burden of unemployment. It would therefore be of great stride for the government to consider supporting NVTI to provide skill training to former employees of the defunct banks and those engaging in galamse to go into self-employment.

The Institute provided free skills training to the employees in a variety of programs with support from some of its Donor Partners which some of the former employees of defunct banks has greatly benefited.

The program is set to provide Start-Up Kits to the graduates to enable them go into Self-employment after graduation.

A number of the targeted group have already graduated from the training programme and have benefited tremendously from it and are now on attachment.

This is amongst one of the many innovative programs by the new Executive Director Mrs.  MawusiAwity.

The program seeks to extend its roots to other European countries soon.

NVTI is on an audacious path to change the phase of skill training and apprenticeship in Ghana.

The Force on Nalerigu E/A basic school pupils

Primary school pupils in the Nalerigu English and Arabic Basic Primary School have been forced to lie on their bellies or sit on the floor during lessons.

Eight years after a storm destroyed the school building, the school now faces an imminent collapse, JoyNews’ North East regional correspondent, Illiasu Tanko reports.

The roof of a three unit classroom block of the school was ripped off in 2014 and has since not been fixed, forcing authorities to mix the displaced school pupils from KG to upper primary in an old structure.

More disturbing, there are no desks in the school, a situation which perpetuates truancy among pupils who are not enthused about taking lessons while sitting or lying on the floor.

Tanko reports that, the pupils present at the time of his visit also threatened to play truancy and drop out if their situation is not bettered.

Gambaga Girls SHS Abolishes Double Track System

The Gambaga Girls Senior High School (SHS) in the East Mumprusi Municipality of the North East Region has reverted from the ‘Double Track System’ to Single Track owing to massive infrastructural development in the school.

The ‘Double Track System,’ under the Free SHS policy was in two sessions; the Green and Gold Tracks, introduced by government to enable more Ghanaian students gain access to SHS education across the country.

Madam Aisha Asumah, the Headmistress of Gambaga Girls SHS, who disclosed this to Journalists in an interview on the school’s campus, said the emergency school project was introduced by government to end the ‘Double Track System’ under the Free SHS programme.

The project is meant to provide some selected Secondary Schools with infrastructure to accommodate the increased number of students being admitted under the Free Education policy.

Showing Journalists around the school projects, the Headmistress indicated that “Currently we have a 12-Unit classroom block under construction. We also have a six-unit classroom block that has been completed and handed over.”
She said the school with a population of 1199 students, benefited from a 300 capacity dormitory block which was at roofing level and a six-seater toilet facility.

Madam Asumah thanked government for the introduction of the Free SHS policy, and said: “In fact if not for this programme, most of our girls will not have had secondary education.”

“Our major challenge now is furniture, but we got information from our Director that furniture will be supplied soon, so we are waiting,” she said.

Madam Asumah said lack of staff accommodation on campus affected effective monitoring and supervision because most of the teachers were resident outside the school and commuted daily to campus.

She appealed to government, Non-Governmental Organisations and philanthropists among others to assist the school with staff accommodation to enable teachers to effectively monitor the students especially at night.

Law graduates kick against quota system

This year’s law graduates from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have expressed misgivings about the General Legal Council’s decision to introduce a quota system in the admission of students to the Barrister of Laws (BL) programme at the Ghana School of Law (GSL) in Accra.

Image result for law

To become a professional lawyer in Ghana, a holder of the Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree needs to pursue the BL programme at the GSL.

In addition to that, professional lawyers from other countries also have to attend the GSL before they are admitted to the Ghana Bar Association (GBA).

The school intends to admit about 200 students this year and a quota system introduced by the General Legal Council is giving 100 slots to LLB graduates from the University of Ghana, Legon, 60 to those from KNUST, with the remaining 40 going to foreign students.

But according to the KNUST graduates, the move was unfair and discriminatory. They have, accordingly, petitioned the council to reconsider its decision.

This year, about 200 LLB students, 80 of whom obtained First Class and Second class (Upper Division) honours graduated from KNUST while about 110 graduated from Legon.

By the quota system, it is likely that majority of graduates from Legon, with the exception of only 10, will get the opportunity to do the BL programme, while about 140 from KNUST will be denied that opportunity.

Mr Oliver Kwame Nornyivey, the immediate past president of the KNUST Law Students Association in an interview with the Daily Graphic, said the students acknowledged that the GSL lacked the facilities to accommodate many students.

“But we will appreciate it if the admissions were done on merit and not on a quota system,” he said.

He said the GSL could have even resorted to a standardization test in the form of an entrance examination to select students to ensure that the best students were given admission.

Prior to the introduction of the LLB programme at KNUST, it was only students from the University of Ghana and a few foreign students, who applied to the GSL for the BL programme.

In an attempt to explain the quota system to the KNUST students, the Registrar of the GSL, Nana Fredua Owusu Agyemang, on Monday held a meeting with the students, during which he was said to have explained to them that the new system was being introduced because of facility constraints.

He said because last year many students were admitted, efficiency was compromised, hence the need for the General Legal Council to set modalities for admissions with the quota system.

Even though he did not explain the rationale behind giving Legon the maximum quota, he spoke of the possibility of opening a second School of Law in Kumasi later on to be able to deal with the problem.

CSOs urge Govt to Review school feeding grants

The Ghana Civil Society Platform on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has petitioned government to review the grants allocated for the School Feeding Programme (GSFP) to enhance the quality of food served.

It said the current amount of GH¢1 per child allocated to schools under the Programme was woefully inadequate to provide adequate and healthy diet for child development and ensure the attainment of the SDG on food and inequality.

“We demand that the government increases the amount to GH¢2.50 which will impact on the quality of diet. The government must also expand the programme to capture schools that are currently not under the programme,” it said.

Petition

The CSOs in a petition, presented to the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MoGCSP) in Accra, said it formed part of the group’s activities to mark this year’s Global Campaign to fight Inequality.

“The importance of the GSFP in terms of increased school enrolment and reduced dropout rates, as well as the potential to improve the nutritional status of the children cannot be overemphasised,” the CSOs stated.

Presenting the petition on behalf of the platform, Mrs Beauty Emefa Narteh, Co-convener for the group, also called on government to make budgetary allocation for the services of nutritionists into the GSFP to help meet the nutritional needs of beneficiary children.

She said the group’s action aimed at making recommendations to government to help improve on national policies and to ensure a reduction in inequality towards the attainment of the SDGs.

She explained that even though the programme was introduced into schools to help improve on the country’s malnutrition status, particularly among children under five years and adolescent, little had been done to employ the services of qualified nutritionists to assist in the day to day planning, implementation and monitoring of the programme.

Nutritional deficiencies

The Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) in 2016 pegged the country’s stunting rate at 19 per cent. Nutritional deficiencies are said to be the single largest contributor to mortality and morbidity among children aged 5-14 years.

Nutritional deficiencies among children was also estimated to have resulted in productivity losses of GH¢1.7 billion in 2017, equivalent to 1.2 per cent of the country’s Gross Domestic Products (GDP).

“The SFP was introduced with one of its objectives to improve the nutritional status of children. It is worth noting however that, there is limited (if any) involvement of nutritionists on the programme at both national and community levels.

“Qualified nutritionist will ensure adequate nutritional standards are set and met for the SFP to ensure that the meals provided by caterers meet the nutrition needs of children,” she said.

Effective implementation

Receiving the petition on behalf of the Gender Minister, Mrs Thelma Ohene-Asiamah, the Acting Director, General Administration said the Ministry would ensure effective implementation of policies to achieve the SDGs.

The Ghana School Feeding Programme was introduced in 2005 as part of the Comprehensive African Agricultural Development Programme (CAADP) Pillar III and the second Millennium Development Goals to help address extreme poverty, children’s nutritional and educational issues.

Students medical examination under Free SHS Policy

First-year Senior High School (SHS) students in the country are benefitting from a mandatory free medical examination initiative as part of the Free SHS programme.

The programme is funded by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) in collaboration with the Ghana Education Service (GES).

Image result for ghana health service

Before the Free SHS Programme, first-year students were required to pay about GH¢50 to undergo the examination which was done by schools that partnered health facilities, both private and public in their districts, to do so.

However, the Chairman of the GES Council, Mr Michael Nsowah, told the Daily Graphic that almost all the three cohorts of the Free SHS programme had gone through the medical examination without paying because the Ministries of Health and Education had absorbed the cost.

Unfortunate

Mr Nsowah said it was unfortunate that people spoke about the Free SHS without looking at the free medical examination that went with it, saying at least it had saved parents some money.

“No student has been charged for undergoing the free medical examination. Before the introduction of the Free SHS, all students were required to do medical examinations arranged by the schools.

“But now schools, under the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education collaboration, have established a relationship with the nearest government health facilities in their districts to provide the free examination to students without paying,” he said.

Arrangements

Mr Nsowah said the arrangement between the GES and the GHS was smooth so far as no student had reported paying any money to do the examination.

He said students who went through the free examination had their records kept at the health facilities so that in case they needed any health attention, their documents could be picked and attended to swiftly.

Mr Nsowah said the free health care started with the current third-year students but not in all schools, adding that however, almost all the first and second-year students had benefited from it now.

Conduct

“While we were arranging this for the first batch of students, we stopped the schools from conducting the private medical examination.

“Our students have benefitted because of the arrangement between the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health,” Mr Nsowah said.

Free SHS

The government started the Free SHS programme aimed at building an educated population for speedy national development from the 2017-2018 academic year.

In addition to the free tuition, there are no admission, library, science centre, computer laboratory, examination or utility fees.

There are also free textbooks, free boarding and free meals, among other things.

Free SHS was a key campaign promise of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2012 and 2016 general elections.

About 1.2 million students are currently benefitting from the Free SHS programme.

Gov’t to complete stalled GETFund projects says UCC, CCTU.

The University of Cape Coast (UCC) and the Cape Coast Technical University (CCTU) have expressed their readiness to absorb the anticipated huge numbers of free Senior High School (SHS) graduates this year.

But the two universities want government to help them complete some GETFund projects which are at various stages of completion to ensure a smooth intake of the Free SHS products.

According to UCC and the CCTU authorities, some of the projects, if supported to be completed, would be critical to the successful intake of the expected numbers of prospective students from the batch of the Free SHS programme.

This issue of the preparedness of UCC and the Cape Coast Technical University to absorb the first batch of the Free SHS students came up when the Minister of State in-Charge of Tertiary Education, Prof Kwesi Yankah paid a working visit to the two institutions.

At the University of Cape Coast, Prof. Yankah inspected the construction of a 4,600-capacity lecture theatre and a 25-unit three-storey lecture theatre funded by the Internal Generated Funds (IGF) of the university.

He also inspected the construction of classroom blocks, laboratories and library at the medical School being funded by GETFund and expressed the commitment of the Government to complete the abandoned projects to ensure a smooth take-off of the much anticipated 2020 admissions.

In all, there are 14 ongoing GETFund projects at the two Universities: 11 at UCC and three at the CCTU but many of them have stalled for several months due to lack of funds.

They include; the construction of classroom blocks at the university’s medical school, construction of laboratories at the faculty of science annex, School of Business and the library.

The Minister praised UCC for the several initiatives undertaken in preparation for the 2020 admissions in-spite of the challenges with respect to stalled GETFund projects.

“The university has used its IGF optimally to good effect to offset what would have been a huge infrastructural deficit. The extent the university has gone ahead in putting up two major monumental classroom blocks is commendable and gives a sense of relief with respect to infrastructure”, he said.

Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast, Prof Joseph Ghartey-Ampiah, indicated the university would do all it can to position itself to admit absorb the first batch of students from the Free SHS program.

“We have since constructed 9,600 capacity lecture theatres,” he hinted.

At the CCTU, the Minister inspected all three GETFund projects: a 2,000-capacity auditorium for the university, a laboratory and a mechanical engineering block.

Vice-Chancellor of CCTU, Prof Joshua Danso Owusu-Sekyere, said the university expected its intake to quadruple with the influx of free SHS graduates in August this year, but stressed that it could be overstretched beyond its limit if its accommodation challenges were not addressed.

UHAS to increase intake for 2020/2021 academic year

The University of Health and Allied Sciences at Sokode Lokoe in the Volta Region is positioning itself to increase admission of fresh students for the 2020/2021 academic year.

The Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the university, John Owusu Gyapong led the Minister of State in charge of Tertiary Education, Prof. Kwesi Yankah to inspect four ongoing projects in the school, JoyNews’ Fred Quame Asare reported.

The Central Laboratory, whose construction began in 2014 is 40 per cent complete.

The VC of says completion of the project, the school of Public Health campus in Fodome and some lecturers’ bungalows would allow the school to increase its intake.

Gov’t to make TVET free up to tertiary level

President Akufo-Addo has said he is committed to improving TVET


The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition is calling on government to prioritise Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to enable many youths in the country to subscribe.

According to the NGO, this will ensure that the country’s educational system produces graduates who have the capacity to engage economic opportunities and participate in the prosperity agenda, leading to peace.

In a statement signed by its Chairman, Kofi Asare, on the International Day of Education, the organisation indicated there cannot be genuine peace in Ghana in the midst of poverty and despondency among the youth of the country.

“On this auspicious day, the International Day of Education 2020, the Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition wishes to remind government, civil society organizations, the development community and citizens to ensure there is a smooth progression from the lowest level up to the postgraduate level to assure of opportunities for career advancement in TVET,” the statement said.

Below is the full statement:

On this auspicious day, the International Day of Education 2020, the Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition wishes to remind government, civil society organizations, the development community and citizens that our commitment to providing quality pre basic, basic, secondary education to all Ghanaian children is incomplete if the education does not lead to economic prosperity, a pre requisite for peace. 

We recognize that youth unemployment [especially amongst tertiary graduates] remain a critical setback to shared economic prosperity in Ghana. As a nation, it is good we have agreed that Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET)  is the way to go in ensuring our educational system produces graduates who have the capacity to engage economic opportunities and participate in the prosperity agenda, leading to peace. This is because, in the midst of poverty and despondency, there cannot be genuine peace in our society.

We call on stakeholders, especially the Ministry of Education and Development Partners to:

1. Prioritize TVET by making it free up to tertiary level as a mean of encouraging the youth to subscribe. 

2. Ensure there is a smooth progression from the lowest level up to the post graduate level to assure of opportunities for career advancement in TVET.

3. Embark on a massive community outreach to change knowledge, attitudes and perceptions on TVET amongst parents and society in general.

4.  Strengthen career guidance systems at the basic level to encourage students to consider choosing TVET programs. 

5. Equip all TVET learning centers to ensure the quality of instruction and learning outcomes are consistent with the standards required by industry.

Millennium Promise Alliance collaborates with UEW on SDGs

Rev. Professor Anthony Afful-Broni is Vice Chancellor of the University of Education


The University of Education, Winneba (UEW), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Millennium Promise Alliance (MPA) on the Sustainable Development Goals.

The MoU is to enable the university and the MPA to build on the comparative strengths of both institutions to engage in policy research, analysis and advocacy in the areas related to sustainable development.

Speaking at the event, Chief Executive Officer of the Millennium Promise Alliance, Nathaniel Ebo Nsarko explained, the collaboration will among other things facilitate the development of a curriculum framework to integrate all 17 SDGs.

He explained, essentially, that UEW will join forces with all other teacher training institutions, to facilitate the design and implementation of the SDG-based curriculum. This, he explains, is to promote transformative change among pupils and students in basic, high schools, institutions, including undergraduate and graduate teaching, professional training and adult education.

“The SDG-based curriculum will among others enable students across the country to explore the sustainable development goals in the context of their disciplines. In this way, the SDGs will be integrated into undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as graduate research training,” he emphasised.

The collaboration is expected to help students to structure courses around real-world collaborative projects for change, in which students will have the opportunities to act and reflect iteratively.

Vice-Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba, Rev Prof Anthony Afful-Broni was upbeat the MoU will support students to engage in national and global leadership programs for young people on the SDGs, such as SDSN youth.

He argued such collaboration with institutions and other organisations will open up the university to the global community.

As an SDSN hosting institution, UEW will provide office space and a secretariat within the university premises in Winneba to establish the chapter. In addition, the university will provide the necessary support to the SDSN secretariat. A detailed work plan is expected to be drafted to ascertain the initial priorities of the network. This will lead to smaller events, workshops and podium discussions with members, partners and networks to support the awareness of the Agenda 2030.

Admission is ongoing: The University Of Environment And Sustainable Development

University of Environment and Sustainable Development (UESD), located at Somanya in the Yilo Krobo Municipality of the Eastern Region, has been completed and ready to admit its pioneer students at the beginning of the 2020 academic year.

E/R: University Of Environment And Sustainable Development Ready For Admission

Messrs Contracta Construzioni Italia, the Italian company who was awarded the construction of the university at a cost of €45,575,000.00 for a period of 24 months, has finished with the main contract and more than 90% complete with the accompanying installations.

The lecture hall block for the School of Natural and Environmental Sciences has 13 halls with a total seating capacity of 1,545, a video conference room with a seating capacity of 40, a computer research room with a seating capacity of 24; offices for senior lecturers, students’ common room, telecom rooms, washrooms and stores.

The multi-purpose hall comprising of a 252-seater multifunctional hall, control room, 100-seater dining room, cafe, kitchen, serving area, locker rooms, washrooms and stores were all ready for use.

The interim management consisting of engineers and technicians are taking care of the maintenance of the equipment and other technical issues at the university, until such a time that a substantive management takes over the university.

This was revealed when the Minister of State in charge of Tertiary Education, Prof. Kwesi Yankah, paid a working visit to the Somanya campus over the weekend.

The purpose of the visit was to inspect the progress of the project as well as to access the preparation towards the enrolment of the 2020 admission into the university for students who want to specialize in research and knowledge and agro business in a sustainable manner.

Professor Yankah who expressed satisfaction with the progress and quality of work at the project site indicated that the school would commence its first batch enrolment in September 2020, for the vision of the government to be fulfilled.

Government supplies food items to school feeding caterers


The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MoGCSP) distributing food to caterers under the Ghana School Feeding Programme (GSFP) across the country.

The items rice, cooking oil, tinned tomatoes and texturised Soy Protein (TSP) have been sourced from local farmers and produced by local companies.

According to the Ministry, caterers will no longer have to contract huge loans from the banks to pre-finance the cooking but will receive the food items on credit from the GSFP and pay back when the Government releases their payment.  

The distribution which began on Wednesday, January 15, 2020, in some regions was a result of an agreement the Ministry reached with the National Buffer Stock Company Limited for the supply of these items.

According to the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Morrison, the food supply is ultimately meant to relieve the caterers from the huge financial burden involved in pre-financing or procuring food items for the preparation of meals for the school children.

Caterers used to procure food items by themselves from different suppliers and markets at different prices which accounted for over 80% of their total income. 

“With this initiative, all that the caterers need to do is to just buy a few local ingredients and they are good to go to the kitchen satisfactorily,” the Minister emphasised.

Cynthia Morrison is confident that the food supply will be sustainable, as a result of Government’s Planting for Food and Jobs initiative and the high agricultural productivity by smallholder farmers in the districts.


She disclosed that she will personally join forces with the Management of Ghana School Feeding Programme to monitor the distribution of the items to ensure the caterers do not abuse the opportunity by selling out the food items for personal benefit.

She further expressed her profound appreciation to the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the Chief Executive Officer of the National Buffer Stock Company Limited, Mr. Abdul-Wahab Hanan Aludiba, for making the initiative a reality.

A statement issued by the MoGCSP dated January 14, 2020, requested all the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies to offer the needed cooperation for the smooth implementation of the initiative.

The Two(2) Nursing training colleges to run degree programmes

Beginning of the next academic year, the Holy Family Nursing and Midwifery Training College in Berekum and the Kumasi Nursing and Midwifery Training College will start running degree programmes in their institutions under the supervision of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

library photo

This followed the approval and support from the government through the Ministry of Health to these institutions to run these programmes and formed part of the larger plan of the university to establish centres of excellence to train health workers in the country.

The Vice Chancellor of KNUST, Prof. Kwasi Obiri Danso, who announced this at the first day of the four-day graduation ceremony for the Ministry of Health Training Institutions in Kumasi last Wednesday, said the two training colleges would start running the Bachelor of Science (B Sc) programmes from the 2020-2021 academic year.

Entry requirements

Prof. Obiri Danso said as part of the efforts to afford a lot more health professionals in the country to upgrade themselves, KNUST has revised its admission requirements for BSc in Midwifery, BSc in Community Health Nursing and BSc in Nursing to allow applicants with KNUST Diplomas and passes in KNUST Access Examinations to be enrolled for the degree programmes.

That, according to him, would allow “people who are already healthcare professionals but still unable to obtain a pass in Integrated Science at the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) to still pursue Bachelor degree programmes.”

In all, the university will be graduating a total of 10,546 health nurses. A total of 1,319 were graduated on the first day from eight health training institutions in the country.

Students of Accra Technical University threaten to embark on demonstration over TUTAG strike

The Student Representative Council of the Accra Technical University (ATU) has threatened to embark on a mammoth demonstration should government fail to address the needs of the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) and the Technical University Senior Administrators Association of Ghana (TUSAAG) in the shortest possible time.

The demonstration, dubbed: “Operation Desert Storm” is in collaboration with Ghana National Union of Technical Students (GNUTS) and will involve the active participation of the ATU which has a student population of about 17,000.

TUTAG on Monday, January 6, declared an indefinite strike to protest non-payment allowances. TUSAAG also followed suit Wendesday.

According to them, government has “refused to fully comply” with the ruling by the National Labour Commission (NLC) to ensure that its members start receiving their allowances from December 2019, January 2020 and February 2020.

Speaking to JoyNews’ Piesie Nana-Yaw Safo, ATU SRC President, Safo Kwasi Kantanka revealed, this was the second time examination has been cancelled due to the industrial actions of their teachers and administrators.

He further appealed to the authorities to address the needs of Technical Universities and also prioritise their output in the country since their skills can actualise the industrialisation initiatives of government.

Meanwhile, some students expressed their disappointment that their lecturers have gone on strike two times, over the same issue. They, therefore, called on government to intervene.

“We really need government to address whatever they [TUTAG and TUSAAG] are asking for because if we do not write the examinations now, I don’t know when we are going to write it,” a student told JoyNews.

“Some of us are not at the hostel, so we have to board car to campus every day but lecturers are not available so that means we are just wasting money,” another said.

NSMQ2020 qualifiers: Archbishop Porter Girls’ ready for Sekco threat as Francis Xavier seeks double over Wa SHS

After five rounds of excruciating head-scratching, the otherwise favourites in that one-eighth, single-elimination contest, found themselves no match for regional rivals St Johns School who beat them comfortably to wrestle the seeded spot.

And so after years of starting their National Science and Maths Quiz campaign among the privileged few at the one-eighth stage, Archbishop Porter Girls’ SHS have to fight other schools in the Western Region for a spot at the preliminary stages of the national championship.

The time is nigh and the die is cast; Sekondi College, 2017 quarterfinalists are the biggest threat to Porters’ participation in the 2020 campaign.

But if they fail to live up to the task, Shama SHS, Gwiraman SHS, and Daboase SHTS are all looking to let Ghana know their name.

The rest of the contests for the Western region and the Western North region are below

Elsewhere in the Upper West region, St Francis Xavier Junior Seminary – who lost two out of two contests in the 2019 campaign – have to prove once again that they are Wa’s best foot forward.

The all-boys’ school lost to Kumasi Academy at the prelims but garnered enough points to qualify to the single-elimination stages as one of the 18 ‘high-scoring losing schools.’

They, however, failed to redeem themselves and were kicked out by Obuasi SHTS at the one-eighth stage.

To be the pride of the Upper West regional capital once more, they must complete a double over Wa Senior High, who they beat in 2019 to qualify for the national championship.

Lambussie Community SHS and Loggu Community SHS are the other opponents looking to stun the regular one-eighth stage stars.

For St Francis Xavier, this contest may seem a formality but knowing the NSMQ, they better prepare to fight to the death for that single spot at the prelims.

A strong Nationwide Strike declared by TUTAG

library photo

The Technical University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (TUTAG) yesterday declared a nationwide strike over the delay in the payment of allowances of members across the country.

The strike action, it said, would affect teaching, invigilation and marking of scripts, adding that “all other services shall continue until otherwise determined by TUTAG Congress”.

“Having fulfilled the statutory requirement of the Labour Law, TUTAG hereby declares an indefinite strike on this day, January 6, 2020.

TUTAG shall call off the strike only upon the fulfilment of the National Labour Commission (NLC) ruling of October 28, 2019,” a statement signed by the President of TUTAG, Dr Solomon Keelson, said.

Throwing more light on the strike, Dr Keelson told the Daily Graphic that the decision to embark on the strike action was agreed upon at its congress in Accra yesterday, attended by three representatives each from the various universities.

According to him, the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) was the cause of all the delay in the payment of the allowances.

“When the directive was given by the Ministry of Finance for the Controller and Accountant General to pay, NCTE asked them to hold on for it to go for certain data.

Would you believe that something that is supposed to be paid in December the NCTE wrote a letter on December 30, a day to the end of the month to request some data,” he asked, adding that the data included “building permit, site plan, indenture and a colour picture of the house you stay in so that they would be sure that they have to pay rent to you”.

He said the demand of the data was unnecessary, since it was a way of buying time and that was also creating tension on the various campuses.

“We are presenting the data, we have not finished presenting .

The NCTE has written to the management of the schools so if you are a teacher in the school and your management is asking you to provide certain data, you have to do that,” he said.

Earlier strike

The statement said members of TUTAG declared a strike on October 7, 2019, following the failure of government to fully migrate senior members of technical universities onto the Single Spine Pay Structure of public universities.

That, it said, was after TUTAG had gone through a comprehensive staff audit in fulfilment of the migration.

“Government sought the intervention of the NLC after failing to reach any consensus with the leadership of TUTAG after series of meetings.

The NLC invited both parties to a hearing on October 28, 2019, and ruled that the “employer shall pay all the generic allowances payable to TUTAG members who qualify at the end of December 2019 (electricity, rent, security, car maintenance, off-campus allowances).

The responsibility, entertainment and fuel allowances shall be paid to deserving office holders in December 2019 and that the back pay of the above allowances, effective August 2019, shall be paid in January and February 2020,” the statement said.

Work

With that, it said TUTAG was to call off its strike immediately and return to work, and that the “parties are strongly advised to negotiate and act in good faith at all times”.

“In accordance with the ruling, TUTAG complied by immediately suspending the strike with the hope that government would fulfil their part of the ruling by the payment of December 2019 salaries.

However, salaries of December 2019 were paid without the said allowances with no official communication to that effect.

It is worthy of note that some amounts of money have been credited to some office holders of the technical universities but the said amounts do not reflect the NLC’s ruling.

This is a clear indication that the government refused to fully comply with the NLC’s ruling,” it said.

The statement said the government, through NCTE, was trying everything to make sure technical universities were not fully migrated onto the Single Spine Pay Structure of public universities, and that “government is also doing everything possible to create a second-tier public university even though NCTE professes ‘parity of prestige’”.
