Ahead of the conduct of the 2023 Ghana teacher licensure examination, the management of the National Teaching Council has cautioned GTLE candidates not to pay money to anyone to acquire a pass in the national examination.
In a communique sighted by AcademicWeek, the Council said members of the general public particularly candidates who will sit for this year’s teacher licensure examination are to report such unscrupulous individuals to the police.
“The National Teaching Council (NTC) wishes to caution the general public to desist from engaging in paying money to anyone who purports to assist them to acquire a pass in the Ghana teacher licensure examination,” the Council said.
The management of the National Teaching Council as part of its effort to ensure only qualified teachers are employed to teach in various public and private schools says it will April this year administer the reformed teacher licensure test.
In a post sighted by AcademicWeek, the Teaching Council said the reformed GTLE scheduled for April this year will be written mainly by candidates trained under the National Teacher Education Curriculum Framework (NTECF).
“It is expected that the results will to a large extent determine how Fidel we have been of the implementation thus far,” the Registrar of the National Teaching Council, Dr Christian Addai Poku said at a Committee meeting on the GTLE.
Preparations he said are far advanced for the management of the National Teaching Council (NTC) to implement the anticipated reforms which include Subject-Based Test (SBT) and Computer-Based Test (CBT).
“As part of the processes leading to the implementation of the reforms, the National Teaching Council has developed content areas and a table of specifications for 65 subjects,” Christian Addai noted.
