If this same question always runs through your mind, then in this article we shall be clarifying things to you.

There are two or three categories of teachers in the Ghana Education Service. The Graduate teachers (Principal Superintendent) and the Diploma teacher (Senior Sup II  or Senior Sup I). Each of these categories has a salary difference due to rank, work experience, and the number of years of service.

Previously, Teacher salary used not to be something encourageable. But with the introduction of the single spine policy in Ghana, there comes a massive increment in their salary. Today, a teacher in Ghana’s Education Service takes not less than 800 Ghana cedis a month.

Degrees Teacher Salary

In another development, we found out that, Diploma teachers who have gone to the university to upgrade their diploma certificate to a degree get paid an increment salary of GHS 200 in addition to their  Diploma Salary.

What this means is that, if say a teacher takes GHS 1245.00 as his Net salary every month. Then After upgrading the diploma cert to a degree cert, this teacher will now be taking a net salary of GHS 1245.00+ 200 = 1445.00
