Requirements And Eligibility For Study Leave With Pay, In Simple Terms

1.Who qualifies for study leave with pay?
Someone who has served for for four years and above in a town or three years in a village or two years in a very typical village.

2. How many times is one eligible for study leave with pay?
After you acquire degree, you would be placed at a rank of PS and GES doesn’t give study leave to teachers beyond this rank. So usually, I would say you have only one chance.

3. Which courses attracts study leave with pay?

Only education related courses. Even that, they give higher quota to some courses than others. GES will not sponsor you to go and do pursue a course after which you would use that certificate to seek employment elsewhere. They only want you to upgrade your skills and knowledge in any of the education related courses and come back and be of benefit to the service.

Masters degree has no rank recognition in GES. It only makes you a sort-after commodity for higher positions in the service. You can become a headteacher of a basic school, headmaster of a senior high school, a tutor in the training college and some other enviable appointments like circuit supervisors and others.

4. Understanding The Study Leave Promotion Ranks

The entry rank for diploma is Senior Superintendent II professional, and you qualify to be promoted to SS I after four years of service. If you serve another three years, you qualify to be promoted to Principal Superintendent. But let’s say you come into the service directly with degree, Your entry rank is Principal Superintendent. If you come into the service with Diploma and later went for either Two years Post Diploma in basic education(Degree in basic education) or Four Years Degree (Second cycle education -Regular) by any of the mode, you would jump over the rank of SS l directly to Principal superintendent.
