The Director-General encouraged staff of the GES who qualify for either upgrading or responsibility allowance to check their respective regions and subsequently to alert his or her office of any challenges thereof.

According to the D-G, the teacher upgrading process was suspended by management due to the high number of teachers who went on unapproved study leave.

“Be rest assured that all these staffs involved have been cleared to be upgraded to the appropriate ranks in the Service. “These works began last month and the rest would be added in August 2021”, Prof Amankwa stated.
