I Will Scrap Licensure Exams – Mahama Vows

Spread the love

Former President and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama has vowed to discontinue the teacher’s licensure examination if voted into power come 2024.

According to him, the concept surrounding the entire licensure examination was not well thought through which raises some concerns.

Speaking in local parlance at a campaign in the Bono Region, he said he could not fathom why after several examinations, students of Colleges of Education are expected to take another test before they are permitted to practice.

On the back of this, he explained that if there was a general problem with the training colleges when voted into office he would first scrap the existing licensure examination.

Mr Mahama said he will subsequently put in measures to ensure that all individuals who pass through the colleges of education are professional by their graduation dates.

The Former President emphasised that he had the interest of teachers had heart for which reason although he had previously captured this in the 2020 manifesto it will also be captured in his current manifesto.

Months ago, the Teacher’s Licensure Examination sparked debates about the mass failures that were recorded by people who had gone through teacher training colleges.

One of the concerns raised by Dr. Christian Addai-Poku, Registrar of the National Teaching Council (NTC) was that these individuals who failed the exams had no business entering classrooms to teach.


According to him, some of them lack even the basic language skills to teach, including some who cannot even construct a five-word sentence correctly, and wondered what medium of communication they would be employing to teach.
