The Ghana Education Service (GES) transfer and release processes for the 2021/2022 academic year will follow different procedures due to the pandemic outbreak. Initially, the academic calendar in GES starts from September to the next year July so in this case any teaching or non-teaching staff who wishes to move to another district has to submit his or her application letter for assurance to that particular district between January to April and the district will issue the Assurance letters to the teachers who applied for it around May or June. Then the teacher will start the release process from July which is normally the vacating month to September which is the re-opening month.
Currently, the basic school academic calendar start point has changed by GES from September to January so any teaching or non-teaching staff who wishes to go on transfer or release can submit his or her application letter for assurance and wait patiently.
Also, the various district education offices should wait for GES headquarters, Accra, for the final directives before proceeding with assurances and releases.
