The Ghana Education Service has begun processes to recruit over 8,000 graduate teachers for the double track system in various senior high schools.

Head of Public Relations Unit of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Cassandra Twum Ampofo who disclosed this on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen Tuesday said interested applicants have until September 1, 2018, to complete an online registration which comes with a cost of GHc5.00.

“GES has started the process of recruiting graduate teachers for the Senior High Schools as part of its arrangement for the launching of the double track system. Interested applicants should log onto,” she said.

Beginning September 2018, second cycle schools in Ghana will run a semester module as part of moves to address infrastructural challenges brought on by the Free Senior High School programme.

The government adopted the double track system due to limited infrastructure within the senior high schools which prevented the schools from admitting more students.

The double track system is to help boost enrolment, reduce class sizes and engage students on a semester basis.

But Mrs Ampofo said only applicants who have completed their national service will be shortlisted for subsequent examination before being engaged for the job.
