24,000 teachers fail promotional exam

In the latest update from the Ghana Education Service (GES), the outcomes of the recent teachers' promotional examination have been unveiled.

Per the results of the examination, held in February, the participants displayed an accomplishment rate of 69 per cent.

Consequently, the results indicate that 31 per cent of the candidates did not manage to surpass the required threshold for advancement. 

Out of a substantial cohort of 80,810 candidates who engaged in this assessment, 55,917 individuals triumphed, thereby securing their positions within the upper echelons of educational leadership.

This examination functioned as a pathway for candidates nurturing ambitions to undertake pivotal roles such as Deputy Director, Assistant Director I, Assistant Director II, and Principal Superintendent within the Deputy Director grade.

The GES, in a recently issued statement, disclosed its intention to dispatch text messages conveying the outcomes of success or otherwise to the candidates. The message will encompass all candidates who partook in the examination. 

It's worth noting that the promotion site will remain inaccessible for the current year. The official promotion letters are poised to be disseminated in the near future.

Here's the breakdown of the performance across different grades:
