The Ghana Education Service, (GES), has temporarily suspended the self-placement Module.

This action, they say is to enable them update the list of schools and programs available on the module. This is expected to last until September 12, 2019.

A statement signed by Cassandra Twum Ampofo, head of Public Relations at GES, said: “Management of Ghana Education Service wishes to announce to students, parents and the general public that the self-placement Module of the School Placement Platform has been temporarily closed down. This is to enable GES update the list of schools and programs available on the module. This module is expected to come live again on Thursday 12th September 2019.”

The service added that “all the other modules on the school placement platform are live and actively working. Student, parents and the general public should therefore continue to access their placement.

Management of GES wishes to sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused to students, parents and the general public who wish to access the self-placement module.”
