The teaching Subject Based paper aims to test the level of proficiency of teachers in their areas of specialization. Each subject or each specialization has its proficiency and this particular paper is to ensure that the teacher has proficiency in this particular specialization.

According to the National Teaching Council, these major reforms are expected to be rolled out fully in March 2023. What this means is that the first edition of the Ghana Teacher Licensure examination in 2023 will start with the reforms outlined by the NTC.

Moreover, the Ghana Teacher Licensure examination for 2023 is going to be computer-based, it’s examination will be written online.

The new reforms aim to give teachers flexibility. For instance, If you feel you can teach a particular subject, all you need to do is to sit and write, and, then National Teaching Council will issue you with a license certifying that you are qualified to teach that particular subject.
