Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana’s journal, TTAG Weekly Journal will today, Monday 20th April, 2020 start operation by updating trainee teachers across the 46 Colleges of Education on current happenings in the trainee fraternity.
According to the Board Chairman of the Journal, Alexander Owusu Ansah who doubles as the PRM of TTAG-ASHBA, the ttag weekly Journal is basically centered to help trainees get access to some relevant informations that evolves around three major areas i.e, the trainee teacher, stakeholders as well as ttag as an association, he said.
In the aspect of the trainee teacher, he said, “we have some trainees who are into writing pieces, who are creative, some performing well in the entertainment industry among others. These people need to be given the podium for them to exhibit what they have and TTAG Weekly Journal focuses to center on that area.
In respect to the Stakeholder, he said, “we capture news from these angles i.e Ghana Education Service (GES), Student Loan Trust Fund (SLTF), National Teaching Council (NTC) among others so that trainees also get informed in the field of their stakeholders because their connectivity is around the vicinity of the teacher trainee.
In respect to the final focus, which is TTAG as an association, he said; “it is enshrined in article 38 that, this weekly Journal would be the official newsletter that would be presented to trainees for them to ascertain the various happenings of ttag”. There will be some series of interviews with some national officers, captured events in the sectors, local ttag and the national ttag itself, he added.
We promise to serve the interest of the trainees better. We will be touching on a bit of sports and any news item which would be of relevance to the trainee teacher.
In his final submission, he advised that “in this pandemic times, he urge all trainees to be cautious and live by the measures enshrined by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Ghana Health Service (GHS). “Take your studies seriously and fetch on educational materials in the wake of the e-learning system so that you don’t go rusty”, he added.
He thanked all National Executives of TTAG as well all who contributed in bringing the Journal back to life.
He assured that, all should expect nothing but the best from them, for they are ready to serve.
