The Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Ibrahim Mohammed Awal, has disclosed the total number of teachers the central government through the Ghana Education Service (GES) will recruit into service by the end of the year 2021. This was revealed in a live video shared on GES Official Facebook page today, 5th October 2021.
Speaking on behalf of the Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia at the 4th and 2021 edition of the Ghana Teacher Prize (GTP), the Tourism Minister said a total of 40,000 teachers including non-teaching staff will be recruited this year.
Hon Ibrahim Mohammed Awal said the Government of Ghana (GoG) since 2017 has recruited approximately 93,000 prospective teachers at the pre-tertiary level in the country adding that GES is hoping to recruit 40,000 this year.
“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.
The impending 2021 teachers recruitment the Vice-President of the Republic of Ghana representative at the Ghana Teacher Prize (GTP) award ceremony said will help reclaim teaching and learning for human-centred recovery.
As the country celebrates World Teachers Day, he noted the Akufo-Addo administration is committed to supporting Ghanaian teachers to deliver quality learning outcomes to support the government developmental aspirations.
Some teachers received some prestigeous awards during the ceremony held today and a lot of colorful culture display graced the occasion.

The 1966 UNESCO/ILO recommendation outlines standards relating to education personnel policy, recruitment, and initial training as well as the continuing education of teachers, their employment, and working conditions.
