According to Mr Yaw Opoku Mensah, newly trained teachers who have completed national service and passed licensure examination before the financial clearance recruitment deadline will be considered for recruitment.
The spokesman, therefore, urged tertiary institution graduates seeking to be employed into service to pay attention to job announcements put out by his outfit in terms of what criteria the recruitment financial clearance is.
The Ministry of Finance (MoF) recruitment financial clearance for the Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to recruit new graduates into service for the 2021 academic year will expire December 31 this year.
