As part of the processes for teacher professionalization, the National Teaching Council (NTC)
registration numbers to all qualified teachers in Ghana
Education service as well as those in private institutions. The
licensing and registration exercise
will commence in May 2021.
As part of the process, all qualified teachers who were employed before 1st September 2018 are
to log on to the NCT’s Teacher Portal Ghana (TPG) via tpg.ntc.gov.gh and register.
The deadline for registration on the portal is 7th May 2021.
For the avoidance of doubt, qualified teachers are teachers who have been trained and certified as
teachers by accredited colleges and universities that train teachers.
It is to be noted that all teachers who were employed after 31 August 2018 are required to pass
The Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination to merit the license and registration number. Thus,
Their provisional license shall be replaced with a full license during the exercise.
It is further to be noted that all qualified teachers who fail to avail themselves of this licensing
and registration exercise shall lose their right to practice as teachers in Ghana by section 64 (1) of the Education Regulatory Bodies Act, 2020, Act 1023.
Sir, NTC respectfully requests you to bring this to the notice of all your employees through your
appropriate line of communication.
