GES shortlists 19,916 teachers for promotion

Mr Jacob  Kor,GES  BossThe Ghana Education Service (GES) has shortlisted 19,916 out of the total applicants of 20,760 who applied for promotion.

They are deputy directors, Principal Superintendent, Assistant Directors I and Assistant Director 11.

This was disclosed by the Director-General of GES, Mr Jacob M. A. Kor in a press conference yesterday in Accra.

Mr Kor, said interview for the deputy directors was to divide into zones with Eastern in first zone, Greater Accra and Volta regions in the second zone, Central and Western Regions in zone three, Ashanti and Brong-Ahafo in zone four  and Northern, Upper East and West regions in the fifth zone.

He said, Greater Accra Region had 2965 with Upper West having the least number of 520 of applicants shortlisted for the Deputy Director Grade.

Mr Kor. said teachers can access their interview letters slated for October 25 this year on the GES website and the regional and district education offices from Friday October 14, 2016.

He said, teachers with difficulties in accessing their letters should contact the regional and district directors of education.

Meanwhile, GES has reiterated its caution to members to desist from partisan politics as it infringes on the laws that govern them.

Accordingly, the 1992 Constitution Article 284 says, “ A public officer shall not put himself in a position where his personal interest conflicts or is likely to conflict with the performance of the functions of his office”.

Mr. Kor said it had come to the notice of the GES that, a number of public servants contested the primaries on the tickets of political parties for the December 2012 polls as Members of Parliament.

He said, per the constitution, it was inappropriate to contest as a public officer and that headmasters and directors should ensure its adherence by all staff members.
