Dr. Christian Addai Poku led NTC said, in all about two thousand (2000) unqualified teachers will be trained in various parts of the country.
The National Teaching Council, being the agency mandated by law to regulate the teaching profession has taken so much interest in the issue of untrained teachers in our classroom.
Management of NTC acknowledges that there are a lot of untrained teachers who are well adept in their content knowledge and need a bit of pedagogy to deliver effectively.
