Background Of Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination

The Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination was officially introduced in 2018 by the National Teaching Council to give teachers the requisite certification to practice in Ghana, but became a subject of controversy in the country.

Some have suggested that instead of the conduct of the examination, the curriculuprogrambe reviewed to make licensure a part of the course program

The government had insisted that there was nothing wrong with the process, but the opposition National Democratic Congress said the mode of delivery of the exams was not the best.

Recently, the Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, said his outfit is adopting new strategies aimed at reducing the failure rate recorded in the teacher licensure exams. This was in response to the fact that the majority of teachers who sat for the exams in March 2021 failed at least two courses in the exams.
