In a letter dated May 3, 2018 and signed by the Executive Secretary of the NTC, Dr. Evelyn Oduro, said: “passing the Licensure Examination is one of the conditions for the issuance of Professional Teaching License and Registration Numbers to qualified trained teachers”.

The statement also noted that the first batch will write their exams on July 25, 2018. The letter further indicated that fees and charges for the said exams will be communicated to students in due course.

There was a wave of panic and confusion among the various teacher unions when the issue came to the fore last year, but the NTC insisted the move was to enforce discipline and eliminate non-performing teachers from the system, in accordance with the new Teachers Licencing Policy under the Education Act 778 (2008).
