The management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) under the auspices of the Ministry of Education (MoE) is set to commence the inter-regional and inter/intra district reposting of teachers for the 2023 academic year.
In a press statement copied to AcademicWeek, the Service (GES) in charge of Pre-tertiary Education said the nationwide issuance of Assurance letters would begin from May 17, 2023, to June 19, 2023.
“Completed applications should be forwarded to GES Headquarters latest by July 31, 2023. Be informed that documents received after the stated date would not be accepted,” GES stated in the press statement.
The management of the Education Service has urged government school teachers seeking reposting to take note of the duration of the inter/intra district, regional reposting exercise as there will be no extension thereafter.

The receiving District Director declares objection or otherwise, by issuing an assurance letter to the applicant.
After securing the assurance letter, the applicant applies for posting from his/her current District. The District Director writes a covering letter, indicating his/her consent.
The applicant must attach all necessary documents (Eg. Current Payslip, Assurance Letters, Certificates, Bank Clearance, etc).
