Teachers to write license exams in July

All prospective teachers in the country seeking to be professionals from 2017/2018 academic year and beyond are scheduled to write a Professional Examination set for 25th July, 2018, the National Teaching Council (NTC) of the Ministry of Education has announced.

In a letter dated 3rd May, 2018 and signed by the Executive Secretary of the NTC, Dr. Evelyn Oduro, said:” Passing the Licensure Examination is one of the conditions for the issuance of Professional Teaching License and Registration Numbers to qualified trained teachers.”

Meanwhile the letter indicated that fees and charges for the said exams will be communicated to students in due course.

There was a wave of panic and confusion among the various teacher unions when the issue came to the fore last year, but the NTC insisted the move was to enforce discipline and eliminate non-performing teachers from the system, in accordance with the new Teachers Licencing Policy under the Education Act 778 (2008).

Per the new regime, no teacher could teach in any school in the country without the Teacher’s Licence.
