TRCN Registration (2021): Requirements & Procedure

The Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) Registration has just begun and it is very vital for all teachers and even educational students in their final year to get registered and sit for this exam.

For those who may not really understand what TRCN is all about and its relevance, The Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) is an important body of teachers formed by the Federal Ministry of Education for effective running and administration of the Teaching Profession.

Nowadays, the Ministry of Education has raised so much importance on this certificate and every teacher who is professional trained in the field of education is expected to have it.

Just like in the medical field, you only perform surgery after you have completed your study program and licensed by the Federal Ministry of Health. So in years to come, only those who have acquired this TRCN certificate will be allowed to teach or even occupy big offices in the educational sector of Nigeria.

To be registered as a professional teacher, a person must possess a teaching qualification not lower in standards than the Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE).

Who can be licensed? Only holders of NCE, PGDE, B.Sc(Ed), B.Ed, M.ed, and Ph.D. certifications who are currently teaching or would teach in private or public schools of any type or level in Nigeria.

Holders of Teachers Grade Two with effect from 2006 are no longer being registered. Those with B.sc or other qualifications wishing to join the teaching profession must still register with the Nigerian Teachers Registration Council.

As a final year student in college or university, try and confirm from your school if TRCN registration is ongoing and if so, get registered and sit for the exam.
