The National Teaching Council Registrar, Dr. Christian Addai Poku, has revealed the schedule for this year’s Teacher Licensure Exams. In an interview on the GTV Breakfast show, Dr. Addai Poku announced that the exams will take place in September 2023, catering to both fresh candidates and resit candidates.
Dr. Addai Poku emphasized the importance of separating fresh graduates from resitters, stating, “This year, we didn’t allow any new crop and any new graduate to join the resitters. All the new graduates are going to write theirs maybe by September. Normally when the new ones join with fresh ideas, they tend to do very well.”
While the licensure exams for resitters have already been conducted this year, the results revealed a significant number of candidates who did not pass. However, fresh candidates have yet to sit for the exams in 2023.
The registration fees for the 2023 Teacher Licensure Exams will remain the same as those charged for the December 2022 exams. Fresh candidates will need to pay GHC 350.00 to register, while resitters will be required to pay GHC 150.00 for one re-sit paper, GHC 210.00 for two re-sit papers, and GHC 350.00 for re-sitting all three papers.
The Teacher Licensure Exams play a crucial role in assessing the competency and readiness of prospective teachers to enter the profession. The National Teaching Council’s commitment to conducting these exams annually ensures that only qualified individuals are granted teaching licenses, ultimately improving the quality of education in the country.
As September approaches, fresh candidates and resitters will have the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills, paving the way for a new generation of capable educators.
