In this modern era of education, Ghana Education Service (GES) has introduced a system called teacher Validation. This validation is done by validators in various schools.

Currently, some teachers under the Ghana Education Service have been promoted to various ranks in the teaching profession. It is therefore clear that all those teacher who have been promoted are entitled to receive an increment in their monthly salaries.
With this, an important message has been sent across all the sixteen 16 regions in Ghana and to all validators in the various schools to be aware that, all the newly promoted teachers to their new rank are expected to be validated so that they can receive their salaries in full which will reflect their promotion rank.
As if that is not enough, all Validators are to note that, the newly promoted teachers to their various ranks have been put on scale and they are expected to receive their about three(3) months arrears. The three (3) months arrears is expected to take place from June 2023.
