EducationGhana| July 23| Proposal to consider Teacher Licensure Examination as a course at the Colleges of Education before the NTC
The Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) has called on the National Teaching Council (NTC) to, consider the licensure examination to be incorporated to be a component of the courses offered in the colleges of Education.
The president of TTAG, Dzunu Jonathan made this revelation in a speech delivered at the 26th General Assembly of the Association held at the St Francis College of Education on July 22, 2022.
”Madam Chairperson, on issues of the Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination, leadership was hinted by plans of the National Teaching Council (NTC) to make new applicants into the forty-six (46) accredited public colleges of education be accessed in the field of literacy, numeracy among others before being enrolled into the colleges. This is termed as the Ghana Basic Education Skills Test(GBEST).” He said
”We wish to propose strongly that the licensure examination be incorporated to be a component of the courses offered in the colleges.”
”The National Teaching Standards and the National Curriculum Framework be part of the colleges of education course structure since most student teachers do not know about the teaching standards and framework.”

Purpose of Integration
”We think that, if student teachers are taken through the courses on the licensure examination thoroughly and are given much time to receive a form of practical training before sitting for the licensure examination, the high failure rate would reduce drastically.” He said.
”Available statistics indicate that for the past three years, 128,493 candidates have sat for the licensure exam and out of this, 88,061 which constitute 69% have passed. Records show that 84 candidates have written the exam five times and 372 candidates have written it four times but are yet to pass.” He said.
