The Ghana Association of University Administrators (GAUA) has called on government to continually engage with all stakeholders in education, especially teachers, to identify their challenges and concerns and jointly develop strategies and interventions to address them. This call was contained in a press release signed by the National President of GAUA, Mr. Kwame Yeboah Jr. on the occasion of the International Teachers Day.
According to the release, this would attract and motivate prospective and talented innovative persons into the teaching profession for national growth.
The University Administrators also commended government for the teacher education reforms taking place in the Colleges of Education, through the Transforming Teacher Education and Learning (T-TEL) programme, which has resulted in the introduction of Bachelor of Education programme in collaboration with five public universities.
The Association further congratulated all teachers at the various levels of the profession in Ghana and around the world, on the occasion of the International Teachers Day. GAUA recognised the efforts of teachers and other related staff in the education sector, especially those who work in remote parts.
