Committee Established to Investigate High Failure Rate in Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination

No more Licensure Exams for Diploma Holders - NTC

Dr. Osei Yaw Adu Twum, the Minister of Education, has taken decisive action to address the widespread failure of teachers who participated in the 2023 Ghana teacher licensure examination. To investigate the causes behind this issue and suggest improvements, he has established a seven-member committee.

The primary objective of this committee is to thoroughly analyze the reasons for the high failure rate and provide recommendations for enhancement. In the recent examination, out of over 7,000 aspiring teachers who took the test, only 1,277 were successful, indicating that a significant number of 6,451 individuals did not pass. This outcome has led to public outcry concerning the quality of teacher training and the examination process itself.

During the inauguration of the committee in Accra on July 11, 2023, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum highlighted the committee’s primary responsibility, which is to ensure that candidates have access to adequate preparatory materials. By addressing the issue of inadequate preparation, the committee aims to ultimately reduce the alarming failure rate.

The committee will conduct a comprehensive investigation into various factors contributing to the mass failure and propose effective strategies to enhance both the quality of teacher training and the examination process. By identifying the shortcomings and recommending corrective measures, the committee seeks to restore public confidence in the education system. Furthermore, their efforts aim to provide aspiring teachers with the necessary support to succeed in their licensure examinations.
