The Director, Certification and Licensing of Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Dr Jacinta Ezeahurukwe, has disclosed that no fewer than 15,750 teachers have sat for the November Diet of the Professional Qualifying Examination for teachers across the country.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Saturday while monitoring the examination, Dr Ezeahurukwe said the examination was conducted by TRCN to test the professional knowledge of those in the teaching profession, and it would ensure that teachers were licensed before going into the classrooms.

She noted that the examination is mandatory because teaching is a profession and for every profession, there must be a professional qualifying examination.

“One of the features of a profession is that apart from getting the academic qualification, the person must have a qualifying examination and must be registered and licensed,” she said.

She said the results of the examination were expected to be out in two weeks.

The permanent secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, David Adejo, who was represented by the Director of Reform Coordination and Service Improvement in the ministry, Dr Yusuf Saidi,  commended the process, saying it would go a long way in improving the quality of teachers in the country and also encourage quality teaching in schools.

He called for more support for the council to deliver on their mandate in ensuring that Nigerian teachers are licensed to do their jobs.
