The management of the three major teacher unions the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and Coalition of Concern Teachers Ghana (CCTGH) have officially disclosed that the Continuous professional development points that are needed by teachers to renew their license need to be reviewed.
According to the National president of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Mr. Angel Carbonu speaking to the media after the three major teacher unions went on strike on the 4th of November 2022, indicated that the Continuous professional development points policy that requires that teachers must build points before they renew their license need a review.
He noted that most teachers will be due for license renewal this year but most of them do not have the required points to renew their license. To ensure that the CPD points building does not act as a counter to some teachers renewing their licenses, the points building policy needs to be reviewed.
Most teachers have protested against this points-building policy because it is now an avenue for some District Directors of Education and NTC officials to extort monies from the ordinary teacher.
