Congratulations on being shortlisted in the just ended Ghana Education Service (GES) recruitment exercise.
You happen to be among the few selected out of tens of thousands of applicants. In this article, I will share with you all the necessary things you have to take notice of, as well as the documents that you will need to present to the Regional Education Office. Read on.
1. Appointment letter (print out of posting)
2. Academic certificates (WASSCE/ SSSCE, BECE etc.)
3. Professional certificate (DBE, B. Ed)
4. Valid national ID (Ghana Card)
5. SSNIT card
6. Bank account number (to receive payment)
7. License certificate
8. Medical report (in some cases)
9. National service certificate
10. Birth certificate.
All the above-mentioned will be required from you. Not the original copies, but photocopies of each of them. (4 photocopies each)
Additionally, you will be asked to fill a form where information on the above-mentioned documents will be used at the district level.
I will advise you here to take your time and enter any information exactly as they appear on each document, especially your bank account information, SSNIT and Ghana. Don’t miss any number or letter in spelling your name, nor quoting a figure.
Significantly, go through the details you entered and make sure everything is on point. If there is any mistake, ask for a new form or cancel with just one stroke and rewrite it. I recommend you fill the form first with pencil before finally writing in blue pen.
Additionally, you will also be asked to choose your preferred teacher union (association) on the form. Don’t just write any association because others have written it. Decide for yourself so that you don’t blame anyone for the consequences thereafter.
Again, you will be told when to report to your school. It is advisable to firstly visit the school to introduce yourself to the headteacher and also obtain information about the school community. You will be required to write a letter of assumption. I have made it available below. Download and edit to your satisfaction.
