FG to conduct qualifying examination for 77,827 teachers

The Federal Government, through the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, will conduct the third round of the Professional Qualifying Examination for 77,827 teachers nationwide.

The TRCN, having conducted the May and November diets, said on Thursday in Abuja that Lagos State had the highest number of teachers who registered for the examination with 8,223, while Oyo had the second highest with 5,599 candidates.

The council noted that Sokoto State had the lowest number of candidates sitting for the examination with 369 candidates.

The examination would be starting on Friday and end on Saturday in 47 centres across the country.

The TRCN Registrar, Prof Josiah Ajiboye, disclosed these at a news conference in Abuja on Thursday.

Ajiboye said that majority of the teachers sitting for this third round diet were from private schools.

He said the council had strengthened the capacity of its staff to ensure an effective monitoring of the examination.

Ajiboye said that about six Nigerians living in the United States of America and Canada wrote the last examination.

He said, “Nigerians in the Diaspora are taking the examination online. Six candidates living outside the country sat for the last one. We had two from the United States and four candidates from Canada.

“Teachers are now rushing to enroll for the PQE. Some of them are now embracing the use of technology in the teaching profession.

“The December 31 deadline adopted by the National Council on Education to register remains.

“In the last NCE in Port Harcourt, River State, the December 31st deadline was reaffirmed by the Minister of Education and we are going to enforcement it.

“We will start monitoring by January 2020. The monitoring will cover both public and private schools.”
