Timetable for the 2023 Teacher Licensure Examination Resit

The National Teaching Council’s 2023 Teacher Licensure Examination will start on September 13 of this year. Three papers are required to be written by each candidate. The test will last three days. 

The Education Regulatory Bodies Act 2020 (ACT 1023) delegates control over the teaching profession in Ghana to the National Teaching Council. The Council is required to administer exams for teaching licences as part of its regulatory responsibilities.

The Licencing Examination’s goals are to help qualified teachers obtain a professional licence and to get them ready to meet the National Teachers’ Standards’ requirements for having the minimal knowledge, abilities, values, and attitudes required to work effectively in schools.

The Council is implementing reform to launch the Subject-Based Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination (SBGTLE) this year, five years after the GTLE was first introduced.

This is a response to the requirement to evaluate potential teachers’ content and subject-matter expertise.
