The National Teaching Council has said candidates to sit for the Ghana teacher licensure examination must have an NTC indexing number before they purchase the GTLE voucher. In this post, we will show you how to get the indexing number.
“The National Teaching Council (NTC) is indexing all the teachers in the country. It is now required that one must have at least a degree qualification before he/she can be licensed as a professional teacher
The indexing entails the collection of the details of all students in the Colleges of Education and universities to generate specific codes for them to easily access the NTC online resources,” the Council said in a blog post.
Following the indexing, the National Council says it shall send SMS messages through the mobile number provided by trainees to their Colleges of Education. The SMS bears their Name, Code and a link to the NTC Indexing website.
Candidates to sit for the Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE), according to the National Teaching Council are to provide necessary requirements as may be needed as candidates not indexed will not be allowed to sit for the GTLE.
“Candidates who are not indexed will not be allowed to sit for the licensure examination. From this year, NTC intends to implement the indexing fee of 50 Ghana cedis per student as approved by Parliament under fees and charges.
Also, a candidate who may not receive their messages or cannot pay at the bank should contact his/her college authorities to confirm whether their information has been sent to the NTC,” the Council stated in the blog post.
