THE DIRECTOR GENERAL GHANA EDUCATION SERVICE ACCRA
PROMOTION AND ISSUES ARISING
In your letter dated June 2, 2021 with reference number GES/DD-G/2/21/127 signed by the Deputy Director eneral (MS), you indicated that out of 46,486 candidates who were shortlisted for the promotion aptitude test, 29,465 candidates representing 63.3% were successful.
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. Others were asked to submit documents to the HR at the GES Headquarters for 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.
We 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 it deserves before things get out of hand.
