GES: Responsibility allowance factored into the salary level on the Single Spine Salary Structure.

GES: Responsibility allowance factored into the salary level on the Single Spine Salary Structure.

Management Ghana Education Service has noted that there are lots of misinterpretation over the issue of responsibility allowance within the Service, especially among staff and wishes to offer the following:

Teaching staff 

Responsibility allowance is payable to only professional teachers who are of the following ranks: 

Deputy Director

Assistant Director I

Assistant Director II

Principal Superintendent 

Responsibilities which attract the allowance among the teaching staff are: 

School heads(basic)


Assistant headmaster(SHS)


Form master/mistress(class master/mistress)

Guidance and Counseling coordinators

Heads of Department(Program heads)

House master/mistress 

Frontline heads(at districts, regions)

Unit heads(headquarters)

For the avoidance of doubt, heads of Department refers to the following Departments:

Agricultural Science 



Home Economics 

Visual Art

General Science 

General Art


Mathematics and ICT 

Non-Teaching staff entitled to responsibility allowance are:

Principal Accountant(substantive)

Principal Internal Auditor(Substantive)

Principal Administrative officer(who has duly been posted as head of the administrative unit by the regional director of education to a school/office)

Staff are also to note that their respective responsibilities are factored into the salary level on single spine salary structure. Therefore, there is no separate salary line for responsibility allowance on the e-payslip.

It is the belief of management that these clarifications should bring to rest some of the agitations within some sections of staff.
