2023 GES Study Leave With Pay Announced | New regional/ subject quota revealed

Ghana Education Service (GES) usually announces the timelines for application for study leave. There are two types of study leave. There is a study leave without pay and there is study leave with pay. The 2023 GES Study leave with pay has been announced in a circular to regional directors of education by the Director General of the service.

GES study leave with pay and without pay

Study leave without pay means that the employee of the Ghana Education Service is ready to go for further studies without any expectations for salaries from the employer. The worker will have to find his or her financial resources to support themselves at school during the study. The employer is not liable for any financial stress that the employee will go through during their academic period.

those who proceed to further studies without pay are also undergoing retraining exercises, their decision to go for further studies is due to their inability to wait for their turn to receive the study leave with pay benefits. The decision to go for further studies without pay is normally underpinned by the individual’s situation and/or aspirations.

Study leave with pay is also available to all employees of the Ghana Education Service. The opportunity provides financial support to the employee through payment of the worker’s salary while he or she is at school studying. The decision to pay the salaries of the worker while on further studies is part of the retraining activities of the service.

However, there is not enough money to fund every employee’s study leave with pay. This is because the employer must recruit extra workers to replace those who proceed on study leave with pay. This means the employer will be paying double the salary for the same job.

The inability to find all necessary study leave with pay results in a proportional allocation of vacancies for applicants.

The proportional allocation of vacancies to applicants is termed QUOTA. The quota system is allocated based on subject areas as well as based on a regional/district basis.

This year’s announcement of the application window for GES study leave with pay came with two disclosures. The circular indicated that there is an allocation based on subject areas and regional/district quota. A portion of the release read:

“Please find attached the approved course and regional allocation for study leave with pay for the 2023 academic year”

The director general of the service demands that the compilation of all the eligible candidates who have been selected must be forwarded to his office by October end.

“Please submit the 2023 study leave with pay returns to the Director General by 31st October 2023”, the letter read.
