Information gathered from the management of the Ghana Education Service has revealed that the 2022 budget that was read yesterday by the Finance Minister Mr. Ken Ofori Atta in parliament house does not influence the 2021 Ghana Education Service recruitment and posting of newly qualified trained teachers.
On Wednesday 17th of November 2021, the minister of finance, Mr. Ken Ofori Atta read the 2022 budgetary allocation that the state has budgeted to spend in the 2022 economy year. The minister did not talk about plans made for the recruitment of the Ghana Education Service teaching and non-teaching staff who are waiting for financial clearance to be posted.
Most of the newly qualified trained teachers were so worried that the Minister of finance didn’t talk about their financial clearance.
Speaking to an official of the Ghana Education Service has shown that the 2022 budget that was read on the 17th of November 2021 by the Finance Minister does not influence the 2021 GES recruitment of both teaching and non-teaching staff.
The information reveals that currently there is ongoing recruitment and posting of teachers returning from study leave with pay and also the recruitment of the degree and diploma nurses by the Ghana Health Service is an indication that the 2021 newly qualified trained teachers portal will be open by the end of November.
Last October 2021, the deputy finance Minister Abena Asare stated that the ministry has received over 40,000 teaching and non-teaching staff to be recruited by the Ghana Education Service which needs financial clearance. She assured them that the ministry is following due process to ensure these batch of teachers get the financial clearance.
