The National Teaching Council (NTC) has directed every teacher (private or public) to register on the Teacher Portal Ghana to enable them to issue licenses in the month of May 2021.
The latest information made available by the Council’s Public Relations Unit indicates that those who have registered already and gotten 100% on the portal are not included in the present registration. Most teachers in this group have been given their new Registered Numbers via SMS.
Those who registered but couldn’t reach 100% must go back to the portal and complete it. They will receive new Registration Numbers afterward.
However, non-professionals will be registered after this exercise and issued a temporary license. Meanwhile, data on those recruited after August 2018 is being worked on. They can log in from Monday to update their information.
According to the council, those who have passed Ghana Teacher License Exams (GTLE) but are not yet employed can also register from Monday, 19th April 2021. They are however urged to note that they have to pay Ghc200 for the full license.
For all Ghana Education Service staff, NTC has already prepopulated some basic information about them on the portal. All GES staff is therefore advised to make sure that their names on the portal tallies with what is on their professional certificate.
