New Curriculum for a one-year top-up for Diploma holders. The General Secretary of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), Mr Thomas T. Musah has called on the stakeholders in the management of Colleges of Education in Ghana, to let the diploma holders start doing the one-year top-up to obtain their Degrees.

Mr Musah, who made this revelation to Colleges of Education Weekly Journal,said a curriculum should be designed to allow for the one-year top-up leading to the award of a degree

“Therefore, while some people are now studying to gain degrees, let the diploma holders start doing the one-year top-up. A curriculum should be designed to allow for the one-year top-up leading to the award of a degree. So that by the time their juniors come out, they will not be disadvantaged. We need to ensure equity and fairness. I am hoping and believing that GNAT and TTAG together, will push this issue to its fruition” Mr Musah added.

The General Secretary said this happened some years back when teachers with Cert ‘A’ had a problem when their juniors started doing the Diploma. And instead of helping those with Cert ‘A’ get their Diploma, they were delayed until they became juniors to those who were doing the Diploma.

He believed this time, there was the  need to avoid that kind of situation again from arising

“we have ever been where we are now before. Once upon a time, teachers with Cert ‘A’ had a problem when their juniors started doing the Diploma. And instead of helping those with Cert ‘A’ get their Diploma, we delayed until they became juniors to those who were doing the Diploma. This time, we are saying that we need to avoid that kind of situation again from arising.” He said.
