The National Teaching Council (NTC) responsible for licensing and registering teachers in the country has visited the Nursing and Midwifery Council (N&MC) to study how to administer licensing examinations for graduate teachers.
NTC’s delegation led by the Registrar of NTC, Dr Christian Addai-Poku were offered the opportunity to adopt N&MC’s licensing examination system to restructure and transform the conduct of the Ghana teacher licensure examination.
At the time the delegation visited the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana, the Council was conducting the August 2021 online licensing examinations for nurses and midwives from various public and private health institutions.
The Registrar of N&MC, Mr Felix Nyante after a brief presentation on the just ended August 2021 online licensing examination for basic programmes toured some of the examination centres with the Teaching Council delegation.
He assured the Management of the National Teaching Council (NTC) his outfit is ever prepared to cooperate and collaborate in assisting in the restructuring and transformation of the licensing examinations for teachers.
After conducting the first phase of the Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE) in May for graduates from various teacher training institutions, NTC September this year will administer a second phase of the teacher license test.
The September examination the Registrar of NTC in a post sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh said is to give prospective teachers who could not pass the May edition the opportunity to prepare adequately and pass this time.
