GES To Recruit More Teaching And Non Teaching Staff This Year, Other Matters

The Ghana Education Service is going to recruit about 40,000 personnel both teaching and non teaching staff to fill several vacancies in the various public schools by the end of 2021. The 40,000 people to be recruited will augment the 93,000 staff who have already been recruited since the government assumed office.


The purpose of this year's recruitment is to improve teaching and learning in public schools and as well reduce the burden on teachers who are forced to handle more than one class in some schools due to lack of teachers. 

According to Hon. Ibrahim Mohammed Awal, more teachers are needed in the pre-tertiary level to ease the congestion in public schools. Speaking at the 4th Edition of the Ghana Teacher Prize held yesterday, the Minster said the recruitment will help reclaim teaching and learning for human-centered recovery. 

In addition to that, the Minister for Tourism disclosed that the government’s aim is to deliver quality learning outcomes to support his developmental agenda.

Other matters

 In other matters, the Minister did not reveal the date for the recruitment. Meanwhile, we hope that what he said does not take long.

He also did not tackle the issue of NABCO trainees under Educate Ghana model being part of the said recruitment. Further clarification from the honourable Minister is needed. 

In recent times, most trained teachers no dot accept postings to rural communities. As a result of this, there very few teachers in these areas. The Director-General if GES should put strict measures in place to correct this menace. 

Are the recruited teachers going to be posted to village schools as well? If yes, how will they make sure these teachers accept postings to remote areas without having their way out? 

These are a few questions many concerned teachers and Ghanaians wish to have answers to them.
