Promotion of Stagnated TTC Tutors 2023
Promotion of Stagnated TTC Tutors 2023.TSC needs to address the complaints of the increasingly disregarded Teachers Training College (TTC) tutors. The majority of these tutors have remained in their current positions for an extended period of time. After numerous attempts to get the commission to abide by the suggestion, the employer has ignored the recommendation given for this group of tutors by the 2012–2017 CBA.
The CBA proposed that all TTC tutors serving in the role of Lecturer 1, or Job Group C3, be immediately promoted to Senior Lecturer 4, or Job Group C4. The tutors’ and KUPPET’s efforts have been fruitless. This indicates that the CBA was not completely implemented by the commission.
There were no openings for tutors in the newly posted opportunities for advancement among the 35 TTCs. For chief principals who are in administrative positions, TSC only filled seven slots.
Those tutors who had previously worked as administrators in secondary schools but were transferred to TTCs suffered greatly when the 2017 CBA went into force. Whereas their contemporaries who were employed as secondary school administrators were transferred to Job Group D3, those who were in the then Job Group M were transferred to Job Group C4. In essence, it will take these tutors more than 15 years to catch up to where their colleagues from secondary school were.
The highest grade a lecturer can receive under the Teachers Career Progression Guidelines (CPG) released by TSC is D2. Strangely, there are no tutors working in the TTCs in D1 or D2.
Despite numerous requests from those who were sent from elementary and high schools to these colleges, the commission is refusing to return them.
Recently, these tutors were in responsibility of retraining all head teachers of primary schools and instructors at junior secondary schools (JSS). Strangely, the elementary school head teachers who are a result of these tutors make more money than them.
TSC is planning to launch a refresher course for DPTE.
Beginning in August, all primary school head teachers, their assistants, senior teachers, and classroom teachers will participate in a professional development program called the Diploma in Primary Teacher Education (DPTE), which will be overseen by the same dejected teachers.
The tutors have made suggestions for the employer’s consideration that, in their opinion, will enhance their welfare and boost their morale.
