Teachers without professional license have till December 2019 to acquire one.

Prof. Anthony Anwukah, the Minister of State for Education, made this known on Thursday at a news conference to mark the 2018 World Teachers’ Day in Abuja, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

According to the minister, the license can be obtained from the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN).

“In order to enhance professionalism in the teaching profession, it is now required of every teacher to register and obtain a professional license from the TRCN.

“This is in tandem with international best practices as a means of updating the professionals on issues germane to their growth and development in the profession.

“Also, in line with the philosophy of the National Policy on Education, the Federal Government through the ministry of education has been setting aside annually resources to improve the education sector through budgetary.

“However, due to funding constraints arising from the dwindling national revenue and the demand of other equally important sectors, the annual capital outlay for education has not been adequate,’’ he said.

Meanwhile, the 2018 theme for the World Teachers Day is: “The Right to Education means the Right to a Qualified Teacher”.
