The National Teaching Council (NTC) Tuesday, July 6, 2021, will commence the issuance of the nationwide teacher license cards to in-service teachers in the Western Region, a staff of the Council has told EducationWeb.com.gh.
“We on July 6, 2021, will start the NTC licensing of teachers in Western Region, so we urge all qualified teachers due to be licensed to visit the Teacher Portal Ghana (https://tpg.ntc.gov.gh) to register for the license card,” he said.
The nationwide issuance of the teacher license card the Teaching Council has said forms part of the Akufo-Addo led government’s effort to promote teacher professionalization in the country to ensure all qualified teachers are licensed.
According to the National Teaching Council (NTC), the NTC teacher license card which is recognized by the African Federation of Teachers (AFTRA) can be used to teach in the country and outside Ghana.
All qualified teachers who fail to avail themselves of the licensing and registration exercise shall lose their right to practise as teachers in Ghana in accordance with section 64 (I) of the Education Regulatory Bodies Act, 2020, Act 1023.
