The Ghana Education Service (GES) has hinted of plans to begin teachers’ promotion processes for 2019 and 2020 by February, 2020.

According to the Director General, Prof. Opoku Amankwah, the promotion for 2019 especially delayed due to some inconsistencies and consensus that were not reached.

Speaking in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show, Prof. Amankwah assured all challenges in connection with the processes would be duly addressed.


“We received about 35,000 applications for the 2019 promotion year but could not attend to them due to some issues that came up. This year we have received about 47,000 applications and we are working to start the process by February,” he said.

Meanwhile, commenting on the success of the online promotion application portal, Prof Amankwah stressed it had helped to reduce the bureaucracies in the approval of the promotion of teachers as well as other categories of workers under GES.
