Eligibility and Criteria For GES Recruitment

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has officially outlined these criteria for recruitment. You are eligible to apply when you meet the following criteria. Although the focus is on the final year college of education students, any graduate either from the colleges of education or tertiary institutions with education background or certification  who meets these criteria should apply.

This include diploma and degree holding graduates who offered education related courses at the universities such as University of cape coast (UCC), University of education (UEW) or by distance such as Jackson college of education or institutions accredited to run distance courses by the University of cape coast (UCC) or University of education (UEW).


Rumors are that this recruitment is for colleges of education graduates but we entreat university graduates with education background to apply. As of whether there will be another recruitment for graduates is very unlikely. It is likely that the same system is being used to recruit both colleges of education graduates and university graduates alike.

It has already been stated officially on air that university graduates with the requisite education background who meets all the criteria would be considered. It is stated emphatically in the GES communique below.


There are also limited vacancies for graduates with early childhood / Basic Education who meet all the criteria for consideration.
