The Executive Director of the National School Inspectorate Authority (NaSIA), Dr. Hilda has said pre-tertiary private schools in the country that do not employ NTC licenced teachers from May 2021 will be sanctioned.
Dr Haggar Hilda Ampadu speaking to the B&FT in an interview monitored by Educationweb.com.gh said her outfit has told private schools that all yet to be recruited teachers should be licenced before they are employed.
“By our standards, to have licenced teachers is a requirement and we were waiting on NTC to tell us when we can enforce that. By the letter they gave us to dispatch to all private schools, which we have, they are telling us that the time to enforce is now,” the NaSIA Executive Director told B&FT.
She furthered that “this means that when the Inspectorate Authority come to your school and we get your teacher list, we have to see that they are NTC licenced teachers. That is something we are going to keenly look at.”
In a related development, the Executive Secretary of the National Teaching Council (NTC), Dr. Christian Addai Poku has said it will from 2025 phase out all unlicensed public and private school teachers from classrooms.
