Individuals have to go through series of steps before being granted a transfer/release. Let’s take a look at the procedures involved.
STEPS INVOLVED IN APPLYING FOR 2021 GES TRANSFER/RELEASE
With your assurance letter, apply for reposting at District
EDUCATION OFFICE (DISTRICT/MUNICIPAL).
District may then issue approval for reposting as cover letter, which will be forwarded to Region for approval, then full set of documents sent to the Director-General (DG)for approval.
The Director-General’s approval letter will be issued and sent to Region.
