NTC Teacher Portal: Registration Process and How to Login to Dashboard

The National Teachers Council (NTC) is a body that has played a very important role in ensuring that teachers in Ghana are well equipped, trained, and properly managed. One of the ways in which they have upheld this mandate is through the NTC Teacher Portal Ghana (TPG). The portal was created to give teachers in Ghana access to accredited programs that will help them build a better career portfolio to fulfill the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) plan.

The CPD plan involves tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge, and experience that every teacher gains, including all formal and informal experiences during the course of your work, beyond any initial training. It’s a record of what you experience, learn, and then apply.

What You Need To Know About The NTC Teacher Portal

The NTC teacher portal helps teachers fulfill the CPD plan and manages registered teachers’ licenses all in one place. The very purpose of registering on the portal and keeping up with the required programs, courses, and assessments is to keep every teacher currently in active service up to date with new guidelines, trends the NTC is taking up, and help them keep track of their own personal growth and development as teachers.

As an online hub, its sole aim is to help the country grow professional teachers. Through the NTC portal registration, the government can keep track of all the teachers in the country with the help of a database linked to the portal. This means that anyone who successfully registers will be automatically added to the teacher database of the country.

Most importantly, the NTC portal is for all in-service teachers employed both in the public and private sectors of education in Ghana.
