The National Teaching Council (NTC) has been adjudged the 2nd best performing Agency within the Ministry of Education out of the 14 agencies assessed by the independent evaluators for the year 2022. This was announced at the 2023 Quarter 1 Breakfast Coordination Meeting and 2022 Performance Evaluation Feedback Forum at the Ministry of Education on Wednesday, March 15, 2023.
Speaking at the Performance Evaluation Feedback Forum, the Honourable Minister for Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum tasked agencies under the Ministry to uplift the image of struggling schools by giving them the needed support and attention. He charged the agency heads to have a growth mindset for their various agencies and not a fixed mindset.
14 agencies under the Ministry of Education were assessed in their institution-specific and common outputs and deliverables. They were also assessed on the implementation of their roadmap in line with the 2022 Performance Agreement with the Ministry.
In an exclusive interaction with the Registrar of the National Teaching Council, Dr. Christian Addai-Poku, he expressed gratitude to the Board, Staff, and all other stakeholders for their invaluable support.
In 2020, the Council emerged as the overall best agency and first runner-up in 2021.
The National Teaching Council is mandated by the Education Regulatory Bodies Act, 2020 (Act 1023) to promote teacher professionalism in Ghana. The Council is also mandated to license and register teachers, keep an up-to-date database of teachers, develop, and periodically review professional standards and code of ethics, conduct teacher licensure examinations, and provide a framework for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) of teachers.
