Management of Ghana Education Service is aware of the concerns raised by some sections of staff, especially those whose promotions are by work inspection and promotions at the District and Regional levels.
The fact of the matter is that data of some of these promotions have been submitted to Headquarters for approval. The data collected from all the Regions was estimated at around 39,000.
Clearly, the data needed to be verified since not all of them were eligible for the promotion. For instance, the data collected included data from personnel of the Assistant Director grades who were not junior officers. Part of the data also indicated that some personnel
were already on the ranks they were seeking promotions too.
The verification is almost completed and Management wishes to assure all staff involved that when the next window for input into the payroll opens later this month, the process will begin for payment to be effected from May 2022.
it is hoped that by the end of July 2022, all the affected staff would have been placed on their required scale and paid.
It is the expectation of Management that this should provide the needed assurance to the staff involved and to urge ali staff affected to
exercise maximum restraint.
