The National Teaching Council (NTC) says it will no longer publish GTLE results statistics of teachers who sat for the licensure examination to indicate candidates who became successful or failed the mandatory national test for teachers.
Speaking to the Teacher Trainees’ Association of Ghana (TTAG), the Registrar of the Teaching Council, Christian Addai Poku said his outfit’s decision not to declare the statistics are to avoid misinterpretation of the results by the media.
“The media always report the failure of graduate teachers who sat for the licensure examination, they don’t comment on the positive side, so this year NTC will not publish the GTLE results statistics,” the Council’s Registrar told TTAG.
Denying allegations that National Teaching Council intentionally fail candidates for them to resit the examination, Addai Poku said the mass failure of teachers is a result of inadequate preparation for the Ghana teacher licensure test.
“Majority of the College of Education (CoE) students who fail the teacher licensure examination (GTLE) do not prepare adequately towards the Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE), hence mass failure” the NTC official noted.
In a related development, the National Teaching Council in charge of licensing teachers has released the provisional results of teachers who sat for the first phase of the Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE) in June 2022.
“The National Teaching Council is set to release the provisional results of the June 2022 Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE) on Friday, August 12, 2022, after 12:00pm,” it said in a press release sighted by AcademicWeek.
All candidates the NTC in the statement said can check their results from the NTC online portal at exams.ntc.gov.gh by using either their pins given during registration or their examination index numbers using their phone numbers.
Candidates who sat for the June licensure test have been entreated to print their provisional certificates after checking the results. The date for the conduct of the second phase of the examination is yet to be communicated by the NTC.
