Uncertain Future for Teacher Trainees as Allowances and Feeding Grants Remain Unpaid in Colleges of Education


In a concerning turn of events, teacher trainees in colleges of Education face the possibility of fending for themselves if their allowances, coupled with their feeding grants, are not disbursed within this month.

Since the beginning of the year, colleges of Education have been grappling with the absence of funding from the government to meet the basic needs of trainees, including meals.

It has become apparent that colleges of Education have not received any feeding grants from the government, leaving them with limited resources to cater to the trainees’ nutritional requirements.

In response, some college managements have resorted to purchasing on credit, optimistic that the government will eventually reimburse the incurred expenses.

However, the situation remains bleak, as there is currently no indication of when the funds will be transferred to the respective colleges.

As a result, teacher trainees find themselves in a state of uncertainty and concern about their well-being.

The delay in receiving the much-needed allowances and feeding grants has put them at risk of facing financial difficulties, overshadowing their primary focus on acquiring knowledge and skills to become effective educators.

Without the timely disbursement of these vital resources, teacher trainees may be forced to seek alternative means to sustain themselves, potentially affecting their academic performance and overall well-being.

The inability to provide adequate meals not only hinders their physical health but also creates an unwelcome distraction from their educational pursuits.
