Trained teachers who have written BECE, WASSCE and undergone scrutiny at UCC and UEW cannot write a single sentence
Trained teachers who have written BECE, WASSCE and undergone scrutiny at UCC and UEW cannot write a single sentence, due to this, College of Education Applicants will from 2023 write an entrance exam.
The exam will be based on two core subjects; Mathematics and English.
The Chief Director at the Ministry of Education, Divine Ayidzoe, disclosed this at a conference on teacher training with stakeholders.
Mr Ayidzoe explained the initiative is to improve the quality of teaching and learning in the schools.
Despite the introduction of the teacher licensure examination (GTLE) in 2018 to give teachers the requisite certification, the Chief Director bemoaned it hasn’t yielded desirable results. Update on NTC GTLE Exams 2022 and the GTLE Reforms for 2024;
“If we are talking about teacher quality, I think it is time. Even the licensure exam data shows that trained teachers who have written BECE, WASSCE and undergone scrutiny at UCC and UEW cannot write a single sentence.
“How are they going to teach? So there is a call that from next year, entrance exams in Mathematics and English should be conducted so that we get the best to enter our Colleges of Education,” he explained.
… Eii so Teachers can’t even write ” The boy is coming….
Reference to those who couldn’t pass the exams.
Please those who couldn’t pass the Exams according to NTC are not Teachers…
Do you know, there are more teachers who went to university, can write some sentences, have passed the NTC Exams but are not Recruited ?

Add General Paper. In the good old days all who wanted to get to training Colleges sat WAEC and NTC sponsored exams in English ( Objectives and Essay), Maths and General Paper. What did the authorities abandon that ? Time to go back.
I don’t blame the students for not being able to construct a simple sentence. What do we expect when we introduced the wholesale promotion at the basic and second cycle levels?
To get the best out of the teachers, we must start from the grounds. The policy is what is the problem. We must look at it again and make amends so that only the best csn be enrolled at the various teacher training colleges.
Our leaders should stop humiliating teachers with this NTC Exams.They should see to it that training colleges in Ghana train teachers about all they need to know before they leave the school .
What is humilaition about this? The man has reported the reality and say th3y are humiliating teachers? My kate father was a Teacher. I’m where i am now because some people taught me so i hold the Teaching profession in high esteem. However i think it is equally important to make sure that application are well scrutinised before they enter the Colleges of Education. There is nothing wrong with what the man said.
