Revised Approved Rates of allowances for Teaching Staff within GES

Conditions of employment are the rules, requirements, and policies an employer and employee agree to abide by during the employee’s service to the company. They spell out the rights and obligations of each party. Conditions of employment are also known as terms of employment. banboohr.com

In the Ghana Education Service we have what is called the Collective Agreement for Teaching Staff.

This document Spells out all requirements, policies, rules, benefits, allowances etc agreed upon by GES and the Teachers (Unions).

What are some of the extrinsic motivating factors which pushes you to do more..

During the 2023 Base Pay negotiations, Many Teachers were not happy with even the Salary increment being demanded by their Unions, rather they were asking for allowances. 

In the collective agreement, Teachers can go for Salary Advance like it is done in other companies, after Re-sharing the idea to the new recruits, we realized that, it is no more available, we’re yet to ask why ? GES Salary Advance; How to Apply

What can make the Ghanaian Teacher Happy?

Is it Salary increment or payments of allowances.??

For Kofi Asare of Eduwatch Teachers should take a minimum of 3.5K a month Average teacher’s salary should be GHS 3,552; African Education Watch -Kofi Asare

Well, today we wish to remind you here as the Former Minister of Education NAPO Shared on NET-2 TV, the allowances enjoyed by the Staff of the Ghana Education Service.

If you have any comment you can share with us in the comment section.

It is not a crime to be a teacher in Ghana, so teachers need better conditions of service. I agreed that trs should be paid those entitled allowances and Dr. Nkansah if he can deliver to the interest of trs I have no problem with that.

Please some teachers are doing extra duties but don’t get any allowances. Some even have responsibility allowance letters to that effect (HOD, House master, Form master etc) but has not been captured for years. We have submitted our documents severally to the appropriate authorities but to no avail.

I suggest that there must be both online and manual processing of these allowances.
There must be a clearly stated requirement and time limit for each allowance.
If an applicant is denied, it must be communicated directly to her or him with reason.
The monthly allowances must be paid without application.
There must be allowance for improvisation of teaching and learning resources since GES is not up-to-task on it.
The only allowance I have enjoyed is the CPD allowance which is not enough due to charges per CPD points by NTC’s CPD providers.
I humbly appeal to you to put systems in place to bust officials who may negotiate for percentage of the allowance after processing it.

Indeed it’s welcoming news, though these allowances exists few knew how to access it.
However, it is sad to say that whiles others are enjoying, institutions like the National Population Council do not enjoy any of such allowance. A situation that is making the national agency unattractive and unproductive. As if that is not enough no staff of NPC has been promoted for the past 10 years. Whiles the minister in charge looks on unconcern. Mr president wake up wai

Only CPD is enjoyed
But the rest is nothing to be talked about
The matters should be look at seriously because it can’t be documented and is not working which means you’re making a fool of the teacher

It’s a serious matter here.That’s why people don’t respect teaching as a job so i think the new Director General and all the union leaders should collaborate and fight for them on behalf of teachers so that they can have the zeal to do the work
