Nigerian Government To Stop Uncertified Teachers From Classroom By May 31



Nigeria Federal government will from the end of May 2017 this year keep every single uncertified educator from instructing in any state funded schools as a method for raising the standard of training in the nation. 

The Registrar/Chief ExecutiveTeachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Prof. Olusegun Ajiboye, unveiled government's new approach in Ibadan. 
He unveiled that the National Government would permit just those with expert testaments to educate in the classrooms. 

Hiring proficient instructors to instruct in government schools was initially presented in Lagos State in the 80s amid the military organization of previous representative Mike Aihigbe, who was a then a Maritime Chief and when Educator Ajato Gandonu was the official for training.

Ajiboye, Registrar of the Council, however, disclosed that the council has registered no fewer than 1.6 million teachers since he assumed office.
He announced that those who register on or before May 31, this year would be exempted from the professional qualifying examination.
According to him, the policy is part of a three- year ministerial strategic plan by the Minister  of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, designed to end the issue of unqualified teachers in  Nigerian classrooms.
He said that the first examination of TRCN would hold at the end of September 2017 and that the  examination, was designed “to fully professionalise teaching and ensure that only those qualified were employed by government for quality assurance”.
He noted that the examination was designed in modules., comprising category A (PhD holders); B (Master degree holders); C (Bachelor degree holders), and D (NCE holders).
