Trainees can rest assured that efforts are being made by their Leadership to secure their much-needed financial support.
Trainees can rest assured that efforts are being made by their Leadership to secure their much-needed financial support.

According to the information received, the Student Loan Trust Fund (SLTF) has made a disbursement of three months’ allowance to trainees.

Unfortunately, due to the new policy that entails a reduction in the teacher trainees’ allowance, they are only receiving a meager three months’ worth of allowance for the entire first semester of the 2022/2023 academic year.

It is disheartening to note that the said amount paid, which used to be GHC 600.00, has now been decreased to GHC 447.00 (GHC149.00 X3)

See this: Dr. Bawumia Promises a 50% Increase in Trainees’ Allowance.

Furthermore, it is essential for trainees to be aware of the change in the duration of a semester. It has now been shortened to three months instead of the previous four months.

And teacher trainees will now be paid for 6(six) months in a year instead of the 8 (eight)

Trainees are advised to visit their bank as soon as possible to check if the reduced allowance paid has reflected in their account.
