The Principal of Berekum College of Education in the Brong Ahafo Region, Prince Yeboah Marfo has bemoaned the lack of non-teaching staff in the school, explaining that administrative work is being hampered as the institution transitions into a University College.
According to Mr. Prince Yeboah Marfo the Berekum College of Education has no challenge with teaching staff but is grappling with the shortage of non-teaching staff.
“Presently we have no problem with our teaching staff, as the institution transitions into a University College we would need more non-teaching staff, we need labourers, security among others,” Mr. Marfo revealed.
BestNewsGH.com’s Brong Ahafo regional correspondent Kofi Sarpong, reports the principal of the schools as expressing worry about stalled GETFUND projects in the school, while expressing fear that the situation could hamper the intake the large number of students that are being expected as a result of the free SHS and Double-Track policies.
“All our GETFUND projects in the school have stalled. A staff accommodation which started in 2010 is still not completed. A female hostel started in 2013 is also at the foundation level just as it was started since 2013. The tarring of roads which is also under GETFUND has stopped,” Mr. Marfo revealed.
He appealed to government to release money to GETFUND to enable it complete all the abandoned projects.
