The Ghana Education Service released the 2022 Promotion and Aptitude Test advertisement pretty earlier than expected. The main reason for this early announcement is not clear. However, a series of uncharacteristic challenges engulfed the 20201 promotion results. The Education supervisory body wants to minimise those problems to the bearest minimum this time.
The National Teaching Council is the sole body responsible for the issuance of license to professional teachers in Ghana. One the basic requirement of licensed teachers is to participate in workshops and training activities organised by certified Continuous Professional Development providers. The National Teaching Council has sent links to Human Resource Management Development officers of the various Education Directorates.
Some professional teachers are not happy with the Ghana Education Service's reluctance to upgrade them (teachers). These teachers are mostly Diploma in Basic Education holders who have undergone further training in various areas of methodology and pedagogy. The Ghana Education Service informed professional teachers across the country who wish to go for further studies to apply for permission, some months ago.
