2021 Ghana Teacher Licensure Exams (GTLE) postponed; new dates and reason for the postponement made known

The National Teaching Council mandated by the Education Act 2008 (Act 778), section 9 to improve the professional standing and status of teachers and to license and register teachers in Ghana has postponed the 2021 edition of the Ghana Teacher Licensure Exams (GTLE).

The National Teaching Council has postponed the 2021 Ghana Teacher Licensure Exams (GTLE) from 23rd and 24th of September to 23rd and 24th October, 2021.

According to the Council, the postponement is to enable the National Teaching Council (NTC) to complete work on the Test Prep Portal which will enable candidates to practise adequately before writing the examination.

Also, the Council revealed that the Koforidua Asokore SDA College of Education Centre has been moved to Presbyterian Women College of Education (PWCE), Aburi. All other centres remain the same.

In a post sighted by unitedshowbiz.com.gh on the official Facebook of the National Teaching Council (NTC), the Council added,
