Teachers without professional certificate will not be allowed to teach in the class room beyond 2017, this was made known by the Registrar/Chief Executive Officer, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, Prof Olusegun Ajiboye, who gave the stern warning to teachers across the country.

The Registrar made this  known in Ibadan on Tuesday, had to explain that the policy was part of the three-year Ministerial Strategic Plan designed by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.

According to Ajiboye, the council would stop the present form of registration that did not entail any examination at the end of May 2017, while the first professional qualifying examination of the TRCN would take place at the end of September 2017.

He said the policy was designed to fully professionalise teaching in Nigeria and ensure that only those who were qualified to teach were employed by the government for quality assurance.

While noting that the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari would not joke with professionalism in the teaching profession, Ajiboye added that teachers who registered on or before May 31, 2017, ‎ would be exempted from the qualifying examinations.

He said that already, the council had registered about 1.6 million teachers since he assumed office under this administration.

“By the end of 2017, Nigerian children will be taught by only qualified professional teachers who can deliver the quality education desirous for the elevation of our children and our country.

“Professionalism ‎is the key for entering into the profession, those who do not have what it takes cannot be trusted with the future of our children. We are out to ensure a guaranteed future for our future leaders by ensuring that those who teach them are the best around. This will translate to higher performances and better value for professional teachers.

“The professional examination takes place by the end of September and it is the first of its kind and we have structured it into modules of different categories. This is in line with the three-year Ministerial Strategic Plan on education policy designed by the Minister of Education,” said Ajiboye.

The TRCN boss added that the professional qualifying examination would be designed in modules comprising category A (PhD holders), category B (Master degree holders), category C (Bachelor degree holders), and category D (NCE holders).
