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:
Responsibility allowance is payable to only professional teachers who are of the following ranks:
Assistant Director I
Assistant Director II
Responsibilities which attract the allowance among the teaching staff are:
Form master/mistress(class master/mistress)
Guidance and Counseling coordinators
Heads of Department(Program heads)
Frontline heads(at districts, regions)
For the avoidance of doubt, heads of Department refers to the following Departments:
Mathematics and ICT
Non-Teaching staff entitled to responsibility allowance are:
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.
