The National Teaching Council is mandated by Education Regulatory Bodies Act 2020 (ACT 1023) to regulate the teaching profession in Ghana. As part of the Council’s regulatory functions, it is mandated to conduct examinations for licensing of people who desire to teach.

The purpose of the Licensing Examination is to enable qualified teachers to acquire a professional licence and prepare teachers to meet the demands of the National Teachers’ Standards of possessing the minimum knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes necessary to deliver effectively in schools.

Five years after the introduction of GTLE, the Council is embarking on reform to introduce the Subject-Based Ghana
Teacher Licensure Examination (SBGTLE) this year. This is a response to the need to test both the content and professional knowledge of the prospective teachers.
