The National Teaching Council (NTC) has banned all Pre-service teachers who do not have an Indexing Number from participating in the teacher licensure examination.
In a blog post by NTC, the council indicated that it had started indexing qualified teachers at the cost of GHS50.00 per candidate.
Per the NTC’s own publication, the indexing is the process through which the NTC will gather relevant data on potential candidates who are either continuing students or graduated education students in the Colleges of Education and Universities. The data will then be used to generate specific codes for each of them so that they can have access to the NTC portal through those codes.
“NTC shall send SMS messages through the mobile number provided by trainees to their colleges. The SMS bears their Name, Code, and a link to the NTC Indexing website. Candidates are expected to fill in the necessary requirements as may be needed,”
Candidates who qualify are to go to the website https://exams.ntc.gov.gh. to register for their unique indexing numbers on or before Monday, July 31, 2023, with no further extension of the closing date.
