TRCN



The Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) is going after unqualified teachers in public and private schools nationwide.
The Registrar/CEO, Professor Josiah Ajiboye, made the announcement in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.
Ajiboye said the council will swing into action once schools fully reopen.
He said despite the grace period given to unqualified teachers, there were still records of many unqualified teachers.
The Registrar said of the four million in various institutions in Nigeria, just over two million were registered with the council.
“We have about 2.2 million teachers registered with TRCN but the figure is still extremely low. From available statistics, we have about four million teachers in the country. We check if they are qualified before we talk of registration. We started in February before the lockdown.
“Now that the federal government is considering all indices for full reopening of schools, we are also set to continue from where we stopped. TRCN has offices in all the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory. We move round to check compliance,” he said.
Ajiboye warned affected teachers to register with TRCN or risk being laid off.
He stated that the council has the power to remove and prosecute those unqualified.
