The leadership of the three Teacher unions GNAT NAGRAT and CCTGH jointly written a letter to the Management of the Ghana Education service to review the teacher promotion examination results that were released recently to forestall any disturbances in the industrial space.
“In your letter dated June 2, 2021, with reference number GES/DD-G/2/21/127
Signed by the Deputy Director General (MS), you indicated that out of 46,486
candidates Who were shortlisted for the promotion aptitude test, 29,465.” The unions indicated
candidates representing 63.3% were successtul.
However, we take exception to how the results were released to our members. The
system was opened for results to be checked, those who were successful were
congratulated, those who failed received their corresponding messages. Owners
were asked to submit documents to HR at the GES Headquarters tor
verification. Unfortunately, those who were asked to submit their documents for
verification were subsequently told they were part of those who failed.
The teacher unions are not happy with this development since it compromises the
sanctity and integrity of the aptitude test and the results.
The unions, therefore, call on the management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to review the
situation especially for those who were asked to bring their documents for
verification. We demand that this review is done by Friday, June 11, 2021, to
forestall any disturbances in the industrial space.
We hope the management of the Ghana Education Service will treat this with the
urgency deserves before things get out of hand.
