The National Teaching Council (NTC) responsible for registering and licensing teachers has asked stakeholders and the public to submit suggestions on how the Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE) can be administered properly.
“After three years of implementing the GTLE, there is a need to evaluate it against its original purpose, identify emerging challenges, lessons learned and make recommendations for improvement,” NTC said in a blog post.
According to the Council, the deadline for submission of the application is July 12, 2021, and only successful applicants will be contacted for further discussions.
Introduced in 2018, the three-year-old Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE) is purposely to identify suitable candidates (teachers) qualified to be issued a professional license to teach in the classroom.
The professional license as indicated by NTC is the highest mark of professional accomplishment that makes a Ghanaian teacher a member of the larger network of standing educators shaping the profession and human lives.
A staff of the Teaching Council has told EducationWeb.com.gh that the NTC teacher license card recognised by the African Federation of Teachers can be used to teach in the country and outside Ghana.
