Teachers' professional qualifying exam to begin soon, says TRCN

The proposed Profes­sional Qualifying Examination (PQE) for teachers in the country will hold before the end of 2017, Registrar/Chief Ex­ecutive, Teachers Regis­tration Council of Nige­ria (TRCN), Prof. Josiah Ajiboye, has said.
Prof. Ajiboye, who stat­ed this in a chat with news­men in Abuja, said TRCN had taken possession of the test items, adding that the items had been de­signed and tailored to suit the various categories of teachers to be registered.
In a statement made available to The AU­THORITY by the Head, Information/Public Rela­tions of TRCN, Mr Ojew­uyi Muyiwa, Prof. Ajiboye said the Council had gone to the Joint Consultative Committee on Education (JCCE) to sensitize Nige­rians about the examina­tion.
“Everything is set, and we are presently working out the necessary modali­ties for aggressive sensiti­zation of the teachers who represent our major stake­holders in this process,” he said.
The TRCN boss reiterat­ed that the President Mu­hammad Buhari’s admin­istration is committed to teacher quality and profes­sionalism.
Responding to questions on the call for the educa­tion sector to reconsider re-adopting the Teacher Grade II system of Edu­cation, Prof. Ajiboye said, the nation’s education sys­tem does not need to go back to grade II system in order to revamp the edu­cation system.
He said the review that the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) was carrying out should reflect parts of the old Grade II curriculum.
