The acting Executive Secretary of the National Teaching Council (NTC), Mr Christian Addai-Poku, who disclosed this to the DailyGraphic, said those who failed would be required to join the next batch to write the examination in September this year.

He said all candidates who wrote the examination could check their results from the NTC online portal at www.exams.NTC.gov.gh, either by use of their personal identification numbers (PINs) assigned them during the registration or their examination index numbers.

Mr Addai-Poku explained that the targeted candidates were those who completed the colleges of education or those who read Education in the various universities and colleges and were desirous of seeking employment with the Ghana Education Service (GES).

Currently, the policy is that all newly trained diploma students from the various colleges of education who want to teach would be required to write the examination in their respective colleges or as may be directed by the NTC.
