The Ghana Education Service (GES) has outlined the necessary requirement for the payment of Responsibility Allowances to Primary, Junior High (Basic) and Senior High School (SHS) Teachers.

The GES indicated, that for the avoidance of doubt the allowance is not a permanent enrolment paid to all staff.

The allowance according to the GES, is paid to only senior professional staff who are assigned to handle specific additional responsibilities.
