Many teachers who were due for promotion in the lower in the year 2020 and 2021 have not been promoted due to the covid 19 pandemic and it's associated impact. These batches are the 2016 and 2017 group of teachers. 

The Ghana Education Service GES has revealed that it is working on the lower ranks of teachers. Teachers who are in a dilemma as to when they will be promoted from Senior Superintendent II to Senior Superintendent I have been urged to note that upgrading will be done first followed by promotion. This was revealed on GNAT our, a program hosted by Angel Fm on 2nd October 2021.

However, the promotion of both senior ranks and lower ranks will be done in batches. Information gathered by on the live video shared by GNAT hour via Angel FM reveals that the various Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has directed all the various district directors to submit the 2016 and 2017 list of qualified persons for the lower ranks hence district directors can not do anything about it.

 The promotion of teachers to Senior Superintendent I will enhance salary adjustment. However, teachers in this category are to note that the difference between point one of any rank to point one of the very immediate succeeding ranks is 250 cedis.

Each point is 35 cedis,so as you increase in point,you get more closer to the next rank monetarily. Therefore when an individual is promoted, the difference wouldn’t be much. Concerning payment of salary arrears, persons will be paid arrears depending on the effective date on the promotion letter.

 On GNAT hour show, the GNAT representative said, he cannot confirm the effective date that will be quoted on the promotion letter but he revealed that Ghana Education Service is massively working on all teachers promotion and that the 2016 and 2017 batches are the next since the higher ranks who wrote exams in February have been put to the appropriate scale.
