Dr. Christian Addai-Poku, Registrar of the National Teaching Council, reports that 44,000 of the 120 000 teachers who took the 2022 Ghana Teacher Licensure Examinations failed.
Given the weak performance of the instructors who were tasked with educating youngsters, he claimed that the exam results were concerning.
These comments were delivered by Dr. Addai-Poku during the Institute of Teacher Education and Development’s (INTED) town hall meeting for the 2022–23 Cohort of the Leading Girls’ Learning Program.
In order to improve the learning environment for females in second cycle schools, INTED has enrolled the Leading Girls’ Learning Programme with funding from USAID.
In order to enhance teaching and learning results at classrooms, the program also increases the competencies and abilities of instructors in second cycle institutions.
According to Dr. Addai-Poku, teachers’ skills must be consistently improved if they are to achieve in their line of work.
He emphasized that teachers may improve their abilities and advance in their teaching careers via ongoing professional development.
Female teachers need to be encouraged to advance up the teaching ladder into second-cycle institutions, according to Dr. Addai-Poku, as their numbers there are not encouraging.
Only 26% of the teachers at the second cycle level were female, according to his statistics.
