GES Upgrading Guide

Many Teachers complain why their upgrading to other ranks delays for so long. Well, the Ghana Education Service has made it clear, some teachers want to jump the process and get upgraded earlier than stipulated.

In that case, a detailed GES Upgrading guide has been provided to help teachers understand the appropriate times to apply.

You are advised to read closely to be sure you are qualified for upgrading before even starting the process. Failure to do that your expectation of upgrading will be a mirage.

PROCESSING OF UPGRADING FROM SENIOR SUPRINTENDENT TO PRINCIPAL SUPERINTENDENT (PS)

WHAT YOU SHOULD NOTE BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO PROCESS OR NOT

  1. Some of the teachers have their upgrading to PS letters signed by a District/Municipal/Metro Director. The affected teachers should apply to the Regional Director for PS upgrading letter.

2. Teachers should attach their current pay-slips

3. Teachers who obtained Diploma in Basic Education (DBE) or Senior Superintendent II in 2014 can apply to PRINCIPAL SUPERINTENDENT in 2020 with their degree certificates

4. Example: A teacher has obtained degree certificate and has applied for Principal Superintendent letter

a. If you receive the application, please check the year he/she obtained the DBE

b. Note that some teachers obtained the DBE two (2) or three (3) years before their appointment. In such instances use the effective date on the 1st appointment letter.
