It directed the candidates to check using the PIN assigned to them during the registration or their GTLE index number.
The statement further asked candidates, who passed in all the examinations, to print their certificates from the NTC portal instead of visiting the offices of the NTC for the purpose of collecting their certificates.
“Candidates, who sat for the March 2020 GTLE and passed, should also print their certificates online from the NTC portal,” the statement further instructed.
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.
Mr Addai-Poku said those who were already teaching, both in public and private schools, would not be required to write the examination but would undertake a number of in-service professional training programmes to upgrade themselves to enable them to obtain the licence.
