The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), Coalition of Concerned Teachers-Ghana (CCT-GH), and the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) have petitioned the Ghana Education Service (GES) to review the just-released results for the aptitude test.
According to a statement sighted by Educandghana.net and signed by the three teacher unions reveals that out of 46,486 candidates who were shortlisted for the promotion aptitude test, 29,465 candidates representing 63.3% were successful. This pronouncement was made by the Deputy Director General (MS) of GES in a letter dated June 2, 2021, with reference number GES/DD-G/2/21/127.
However, the unions take exception to how the results were released to our members. The system was opened for results to be checked, those who were successful were congratulated, those who failed received their corresponding messages.
In the statement, the leadership of the teacher unions revealed that others were asked to submit documents to the HR at the GES Headquarters for verification.
Unfortunately, those who were asked to submit their documents for verification were subsequently told they were part of those who failed.
Therefore, the teacher unions are not happy with this development since it compromises the sanctity and integrity of the aptitude test and the results.
They have therefore called on the management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to review the situation especially for those who were asked to bring their documents for verification. We demand that this review is done by Friday, June 11, 2021 to forestall any disturbances in the industrial space.
The unions have therefore urged the managenent of GES to treat this demand with the urgency it deserves before things get out of hand.
