News Inviting Teachers for Compulsory Examination False – NTC
The National Teaching Council (NTC) has refused claims of news circulating on social media that all teachers must attend compulsory orientation for the impending examination.
The NTC said it has not hand in the purported information and must be disregarded as such.
A statememt issued by the Public Relations Unit of the NTC on Wednesday explained that “The National Teaching Council’s attention has been drawn to a write up circulating on social media purported to have come from our outfit station that “all must attend compulsory orientation for exams. Fee is GHS60. Time 8:00 a. m. prompt”.
Deputy General Secretary of GNAT, Gifty Anyogbe Apanbil is quoted to have said the licensure exams does not only lack legislative backing but is being organized in a rush.
“There are a lot of issues that the unions have raised which have not been addressed…also, the people who are going to write the exam are anxious because they have no idea about the nature of the exam they are going to write.
“There should be sample questions on the NTC website for them to access and guide them in their studies. Also, with university graduates involved, those writing must have an idea of what they are writing about so as not to be stranded at exams centres,” she added.
