The National Teaching Council (NTC) says the forthcoming emergency license training to enable non-professional private school teachers in the pre-tertiary education sector to teach in the country will last about six (6) days.
In a discussion monitored by AcademicWeek, the National Teaching Council’s (NTC) Director of licensing and registration, Francis Addai said the non-professional teachers would spend 6 hours a day on the training.
“They are going to do 6 hours a day for 6 days at the end of which they will be accessed to ensure that they meet the minimum requirement. The training will be short but the content is good for pre-tertiary school teachers
After the 6 days of training, the non-professional teachers will be accessed and be issued the emergency license to enable them to teach. They will be taught how to manage the classroom,” the Council’s official said in the interview.
The Council’s licensing Director added that “when you get the authorization to teach you must take steps sot become a professional teacher either you embark on distance programmes or you go back to the College of Education.”
