Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, TRCN to conduct the first professional examination for teachers this year.
The Registrar and the chief executive of the council, Prof Josiah Ajiboye made it known in Abuja that The TRCN EXAMINATION is a Pre-Qualifying Examinations (PQE) that would be a part of qualification of teachers into the teaching profession.
Prof Ajiboye explained that the PQE would be written based on the four categories of teachers, adding that the old system of ‘’one size fits all’’ no longer holds.
Now we have designed a test in such a way that will be suitable to each category of teachers that we are dealing with because when we register teachers we registered them based on the categories.
“Essentially, we have four categories; we have Grade A that is PhD and above, then we have Grade B that is those with I ters.
“Then we have Grade C, that is those with first degree and we have the Grade D that is those with NCE and Diploma.
“The test has been prepared based on the syllabi that covers the whole education spectrum and you are going to be test based on your own category.’’
