Government To Improve The Conduct Of Aptitude Test For Teachers This Year-President Akuffo-Addo



The aptitude test was introduced in Ghana by the Ghana Education Service  in 2019 as a tool for assessing  the competence and skills of teachers in pre-tertiary institutions.

His Excellency Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo, when speaking at a conference, posited that the aptitude test organised by GES will be improved massively since it propels teachers to beef up their classroom competence.

During the 2021 Teachers Promotion Aptitude Test, out of the “Forty-six thousand, two hundred and seventy-three(46,273) sat for the aptitude test, Twenty-nine thousand, four hundred and sixty-five, ie 63.6℅ were successful”.


The head of government goes on to assure prospective candidates that the conduct of this year’s test will be improved to avoid inconveniences that were experienced last year.

” To prevent undue delays in the promotion of qualified teachers,  government will in 2022, improve the conduct of aptitude tests leveraging on the lessons learned the one conducted in 2021″.

An aptitude test is a test designed to determine a person’s ability in a particular skill or field of knowledge.
