This comes after the Director of Education think tank – Africa Education Watch (EduWatch) Kofi Asare disclosed that approximately 24,000 teachers are expected to be recruited this year by the Ghana Education Service management.

In a related development, an official of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has said the Ministry of Finance’s financial clearance for his outfit to recruit new graduates into service for this academic year will expire on December 31, 2024.

The Ghana Education Service staff indicated that his outfit after being given the financial clearance works tirelessly to ensure more graduate teachers are recruited into service before the end of the recruitment clearance deadline.

“We hope that we recruit more graduates before the end of December 31, because our financial clearance from the Ministry of Finance is to ensure that we employ before the end of December each year” he stated in the interview.

The official further advised tertiary institution graduates seeking to be employed to pay attention to job announcements put out by the Ghana Education Service in terms of criteria for the recruitment financial clearance.
