Process for 2023 GES inter-district reposting
An Applicant seeks an Assurance letter from a preferred District within the Region where vacancies exist.
The receiving District Director declares objection or otherwise, by issuing an assurance letter to the applicant.
After securing the assurance letter, the applicant applies for posting from his/her current District. The District Director writes a cover letter, indicating his/her consent.
The applicant must attach all necessary documents (Eg. Current Payslip, Assurance Letters, Certificates, Bank Clearance, etc).
The District Director forwards the applicant’s documents to the Regional Education Office. The Regional Director gives final approval.
After the final approval is given, the current District Director then releases the applicant to complete the reposting process.
Note: A teacher seeking Inter District reposting can only be released by their current District after the Regional Director has given the final approval.
