The National Teaching Council (NTC) has organized an induction program for newly qualified teachers who successfully passed the Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE) to welcome them to the teaching profession.
The Teaching Council in a blog post sighted by Educationweb.com.gh said the induction program serves as on-the-job training where the newly qualified teachers are exposed to the nitty-grity of the profession.
“It is required that newly qualified teachers (trained teachers) undertake activities determined by the National Teaching Council (NTC) so that they will be considered fit for the job,” the Council stated in the post.
NTC under the Minstry of Education in exercising its mandate as per the Education Regulatory Bodies ACT 2020, ACT 1023 is leading the course of professionalizing teachers and improving education delivery in Ghana.
The need to professionalize teachers and build a strong teacher workforce is consistent with MDG goal 4 which seeks to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities.
