The purported statement the Education Service has said is fake reads; “The Ghana Education Service (GES) is requesting for application from qualified trained teachers who completed CoE in 2020 to be considered for recruitment.”

A communique by GES sited on Saturday said it will at the appropriate time communicate to members of the general public the date to open the recruitment portal for trained teachers to submit applications.

According to the statement, the GES portal for the recruitment of new teachers will be opened depending on the 2021/2022 academic year calendar of basic schools and given financial clearance from the Ministry of Finance (MoF).

The Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) under the auspices of the Ministry of Education (MoE) is working tirelessly to secure financial clearance for the recruitment of newly trained teachers in the country.

"The recruitment depends on financial clearance from the Finance Ministry for his outfit to recruit graduate teachers into service this year will expire December 31, 2021" the post said.

Meanwhile, the Vice-President of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has disclosed the Ghana Education Service (GES) this year will consider 40,000 trained teachers including non-teaching staff for recruitment before the end of 2021.

The Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Ibrahim Mohammed Awal who announced this on behalf of Dr Bawumia at the 2021 Ghana Teacher Prize event said the government is committed to filling every classroom with a teacher.

“Since 2017, the government has recruited 93,000 teachers but this year alone the Ghana Education Service is hoping to recruit some 40,000 more teachers and non-teaching staff to further ease congestion in our schools,” he stated.
