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 ?
Do you remember this”
The Minister Who said Teachers went to school with the worse of results.?
More to come on this…..
