Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, Minister of Education, revealed in an interview earlier this year that the ministry is awaiting budgetary approval to recruit fresh graduates instructors into the teaching area this year.
In one of his interviews, he stated that his organization will be awarded financial clearance to allow them to hire additional instructors this academic year.
He reiterated that the Finance Ministry had previously given them financial permission to hire more instructors and that they had already done so.
Again, he stated that the recruitment for train instructors has already been completed, leaving just graduates as teachers. This implies that graduate recruitment will be delayed until train teachers complete their biometric registration. He claims that this will benefit the free SHS/TVET program.
He explained that because graduate instructors are not prepared by colleges of education, their recruitment will take longer this year.
