Private schools teachers licensing
The NTC a year ago indicated it was in the process of stopping all unlicensed private school teachers from teaching.
In an interview granted by the Executive Secretary of NTC, Addai Poku, and monitored by Ghanaeducation.org, the NTC said it was in talks with private schools to remove all teachers who are not qualified to teach from the education sector.
“It will soon be impossible for private schools to employ teachers who have not written the compulsory licensure exams”, Christian Poku disclosed.
The GNACOPS will on Thursday, April 22, 2021, meet stakeholders to discuss the way forward and outline a clear road map as to how private school teachers can become professionals and meet the basic requirements of the NTC to practice.
