As part of the processes for teacher professionalization, the National Teaching Council (NTC) will issue teachers’ license and registration numbers to all qualified teachers in the Ghana Education Service as well as those in private institutions.
According to the release the licensing and registration exercise will commence in May 2021.
As part of the process, all qualified teachers who were employed before 1st September 2018 are required to log on to the NTC’s Teacher Portal Ghana (TPG) via tpg.ntc.gov.gh and register.
The deadline for the registration on the portal is 7th May 2021.
For the avoidance of doubt, qualified teachers are teachers who have been trained and certified as teachers by accredited colleges and universities that train teachers.
It is to be noted that all teachers who were employed after 31 August 2018 are required to pass the Ghana Teachers Licensure Examination to merit the license and registration number. Thus, their provisional license shall be replaced with a full license during the exercise.
It is further to be noted that all qualified teachers who fail to avail themselves for this licensing and registration exercise shall lose their right to practice as teachers in Ghana in accordance with section 64 (1) of the Education Regulatory Bodies Act, 2020, Act 1023
