Recruitment Of Distance Education & Diploma Graduates
The Ghana Education Service (GES) does not recruit based on the number of university or Colleges of Education graduates in the country but instead is done if there is a need for teachers to be employed.
The Education Minister stated that the recruitment of distance education graduates this year will solely depend on the financial clearance given to the Ministry of Education (MoE) by the Ministry of Finance.
He made this known with the statement:
“The only group of graduates that we got to hire is those who went to the 4-year Colleges of Education, once they are employed if there is a need for extra staff then those who went to do basic education are hired,”
“We have so many teachers in the system and we have a deployment challenge, so we cannot hire everybody that has come out of the university, we don’t have classrooms for them,”
