Africa Education Watch after the National Teaching Council (NTC) disclosed only 1,277 out of 7,728 tertiary graduates who sat for the 2023 Ghana teacher licensure examination passed has said the GTLE is the best basic education policy.
Mr Kofi Asare, the Executive Director in a social media post sighted by AcademicWeek.com commended the management of the National Teaching Council (NTC) for the conduct of the GTLE to license only qualified teachers.
“About 84% of graduates who sat for the teacher licensure exam failed. About 87% of re-sit candidates failed again in Literacy. Overall, there were 14 cases of exam malpractices thus impersonation and copying from mobile phones
Some of the literacy scripts I have been reviewing are very nauseating. I just can’t imagine how our classrooms would be if such calibre who cannot string a sentence together in English found their way in there without the licensure
The thought of they having graduated from the university even gives me catarrh. How did they graduate without basic literacy? The National Teaching Council is doing a good job by sieving the best for our schools,” he said in the post.
Prospective tertiary graduates who sat for the first phase of the 2023 edition of the national examination for teachers, the Teaching Council say are to visit https://exams.ntc.gov.gh/results only to check their GTLE results online.
