Every year Teachers within the Ghana Education Service decide to move from one area to another due to various reasons. The movement from one location to another is done through a process. Teachers have been asking how Transfers are done and which documents are needed to apply for transfers. Depending on which location within the country a teacher intends to move to, the transfer could be considered as Internal or Intra-District Transfer, Inter-District or Inter-Regional Transfer or Re-posting.

Re-postings normally commence in August every year but may vary according directives from the Director General.
