The National Teaching Council (NTC) has announced that all in service teachers will be required to a pay a mandatory ¢200.00 before gaining their license.
Additionally, they have to pay ¢100.00 every year but the teachers are seething with anger and have vowed to kick against it, insisting that the employer the Ghana Education Service (GES) should bear the cost or “heavily” subsidise it.
But the Executive Secretary of the NTC Mr Christian Addai-Poku who announced this, explained that the license once issued was valid for 2 years.
In-Service Teachers refer to teachers who have been employed before September, 2018 and successfully completed professional training.
Mr Addai-Poku called on such teachers to commence the process for the acquisition of their professional license.
“They are to log on to www.ntc.gov.gh and upload some required details. The portal will be opened upon publication in the dailies,” he explained.
