All About The GTLE 2023 Failure

More Than 83.5% Fail Teacher Licensure Exam


In the May 2023 Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination, a staggering 6,481 prospective teachers attempted a resit, but unfortunately, only 1,277 managed to pass, accounting for a meagre 16.5 percent success rate. This disheartening outcome raises concerns about the competency of educators who will shape the future generation. Some candidates even attempted the examination up to nine times, indicating a lack of progress and readiness.

In an exclusive interview with GHOne TV News, Dennis Osei Owusu, the Head of Public Affairs at the National Teaching Council (NTC), expressed his deep dismay at the situation, branding it as a significant threat to national security. Owusu attributed the alarmingly high failure rate to the candidates’ lack of dedication and their inability to answer basic-level questions. He emphasised the urgent need for broader consultations among stakeholders to address this critical issue.

The results of the Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination were released on June 20, 2023, shedding light on the concerning state of teacher preparedness. Recognizing the severity of the problem, the failed candidates who have one last opportunity remaining have been advised to approach the council with their concerns and seek redress. Owusu emphasised that any teachers who believe they failed unjustly should request a remarking of their examination papers, as the council aims to ensure fairness and accuracy in the assessment process.

In response to these challenges, the National Teaching Council has implemented stringent reforms, such as the introduction of continuous professional development programs. These initiatives are designed to equip and qualify all teachers with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively educate learners. By prioritising ongoing training and development, the council aims to uplift the standards of teaching and ensure that teachers are well-prepared to fulfil their vital roles in classrooms across the nation.
