The Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) has opposed Former President John Mahama’s proposal to cancel the teacher licensure examination.

During his ‘Building Ghana Tour’, the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) vowed to abolish the examination if elected president.

He argued that the additional teacher licensure examination required for graduates of Colleges of Education before they can practice is unnecessary.

“In our next administration, we will cancel the licensure exams,” Mr Mahama said.

However, CETAG insists that the exams play a crucial role and should not be abolished.

According to the President of CETAG, Prince Obeng Himah, the exams contribute to ensuring the competence and quality of future teachers.

“In my opinion, it is something that is good and it shouldn’t be cancelled. That is CETAG we have stated that we should implement what we agreed two years ago when we had a conference that the students wanting to enter the teaching profession should be subjected to entrance exams,” Mr Himah said in an interview on Citi News, monitored by The Ghana Report.

The Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination was introduced in 2018 with the aim of ensuring that prospective teachers after graduating from the teacher education institutions were filtered through the license exams.
