NTC in trouble as Teachers raise red flag over GhC 1,200 licence renewal costs

The National Teaching Council was merged with the Teacher Education Division (a former Agency under Ghana Education Service) in the year 2017. The sole objective of the National Teaching Council is to bring changes to the teaching profession in Ghana.

The licencing of teachers in the country is another core mandate of the National Teaching Council. Teachers have been encouraged to get licensed in order to give them (teachers) the bargaining power when it comes to the payment of professional allowance.

However, teachers have started expressing their displeasure at the NTC and it's Service Providers. Their (Teachers) discontent is as a result of the number of courses a teacher has to undertake before their licence can be renewed.

These numerous courses and workshops come with costs. Another unpleasant part is, most of the courses are held virtually (online).

One teacher made a simple calculation and concluded that, a teacher is likely to pay not less than One thousand, two hundred Ghana Cedis (GhC 1,200).

His mathematics would not be understood by many teachers, especially those in the yet to be licensed Districts. Teachers in Sekyere South, Savelugu and Shai-Osudoku Districts have participated in not less 5 workshops virtually(online).
