UCC is one of the best universities in Ghana. The programs being offered at UCC is really perfect and wonderful.
Over the days, it is noted that, all Colleges of Education in Ghana are affiliated to UCC. In other words, all Colleges of education receives educational calendar from UCC.
But this a few months ago, it was noted that, all puplic Universities were scheduled to be under the various Universities we have in Ghana including KNUST and University of Winniba and others.
This scheduled then follows the outbreak of the corona Virus which compel all teacher trainees to undertake their studies or lectures online while at home.
This online lectures attracted a lot of issues but it was successfully overcome as most of the other teacher trainees who are under or affiliated to other universities have commence their examination online since they engaged in online lectures.
But the whole issue is totally different for those colleges under UCC.
Per their[UCC] calendar, online lectures will end soon by next week, of which student don’t even known when they are going to write exams.
This problem becomes complicated as UCC made it clear that, all Colleges affiliated to them are going to undertake a sit down examination despite they were engaged in online lectures.
This is really generating the attack from teacher trainees who are affiliated to UCC and many are of he view that, since they were engaged in online lectures, they also need to undertake online examination.
Let note the various concerns from teacher trainees associated or affiliated to UCC.
“prove to us that yes indeed you people are there and will always be there for us. You the executives
should try your possible best to let our views count.
To the Principals of Colleges of Education, we thank you for being there for us. We say God bless
you for always fighting for the best for all trainee students. We wish to inform you that this is another
time that we need you most. You people are our parents that always fight for us. We want you to help us
this time to let UCC understand that if they think online end of semester exams will not be effective for
them then we the trainee teachers are also saying that the online lectures too were not effective for us. So
if they want trainee teachers to come for a sit down End of semester exams then they should give us a sit
down lectures for a lengthy period before the exams.
We are very obedient students to obey everything but a child only responds to his/her mother’s go
and sleep only when the mother has prepared a bed for the child to sleep on. We cannot come and sleep
at where the bed for us was not prepared. So if they want us to sleep at where the bed was not prepared
for us then we plead that they should prepare another”.
So, as the atmosphere stands now, most of the teacher trainees associated or affiliated to UCC are ready to attack UCC on any occasions.
