This is what the Chief Director at the Ministry of Education Mr. Divine Ayidzoe has to say concerning the examination. He is putting it forward that Mathematics and English tests should be conducted for qualified applicants before fully admitted.

Below is the statement he made:

“If we are talking about teacher quality, I think is time. Even the licensure examination data shows that trained teachers who have written BECE and WASSCE and undergone scrutiny at UCC and UEW cannot write a single sentence correctly and worse things from other institutions.

How are they going to teach? So there is a call from next year, entrance examinations in Mathematics and English should be conducted so that the qualified candidates will be selected into the colleges of education. We have to get the best to enter our colleges of education”.

This was the statement he made last year concerning the examination.

Also, Dr. Clement, the Deputy Ranking Member of the Education Committee in Parliament has mentioned that the NTC submitted a proposal to Parliament for an amount of 7.8 million cedis to conduct the examination.

Once this proposal is approved, entrance examination will be written.
