The National Teaching Council (NTC) is the body responsible for seeing to it that there is teacher professionalism by issuing licenses to teachers. Following its initiative to issue license to teachers, many teachers have received it. However, some category of teachers still hasn’t met the criteria for getting it.
The NTC categorically stated clearly that teachers who were employed after 31st August 2018 needed to write and pass the Ghana Teacher License Exams (GTLE) to merit the license and registration number.
The Good News
Currently, the council has reversed its decision and is currently issuing licenses to individuals who fall in the named category.
This means that teachers who were employed as non-professionals before 1st September 2018 and acquired professional qualifications on or after 1st September 2018 are now exempted from taking the licensure exams.
What Are the Teachers in This Category Supposed to Do?
All teachers who fall in this category are required to make payment for registration and verification of data for the issuance of the full license.
Non-professional teachers are urged to note that the amount to be paid as NTC license fees is GHS 152.25. Individuals are to visit their NTC teacher portal Ghana to make payments.
