The Deputy Director-General of Ghana Education Service (GES) Mr. Anthony Boateng said, Management of Ghana Education Service is aware of concerns raised by some sections of staff, especially those whose promotion are due at the District and Regional levels.
According to him, data of some of these promotions have been submitted to Headquarters for approval. The data collected from all the Regions estimated 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 of personnel of the Assistant Director grades who obviously were not junior officers.
Part of the data also indicated that some personnel were already on the ranks they were seeking promotions to.
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 there require scale and paid.
It is the expectation of Management that this should provide the needed assurance to the staff involved and to urge all staff affected to exercise maximum restraint.
