Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, has said that a database of qualified unemployed teachers is being gathered nationwide to ensure such people are employed into the teaching profession.

Adamu disclosed this while monitoring the 2018 Batch B Teacher Professional Qualifying Examination in Abuja on Saturday.‎

‎The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the no fewer than 17,000 would-be-teachers are expected to sit for the Computer-Based Teachers PQE nationwide scheduled to hold between October 19 and October 20.

Adamu, represented by Mr Sonny Echono, the Permanent Secretary, ‎reiterated that by December 2019 any teacher not qualified, registered and licensed with the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria would be flushed out of the classrooms.

‎We have decided at the level of policy, henceforth, after December 2019, anybody that is not a qualified, registered and licensed teacher would not be accepted in the classroom. ‎

“Let your colleagues know there will be no extension by 2019 because we are compiling a database of qualified teachers, ‎who are not employed.

“It makes no sense for us as a country to have people, who are qualified out of job and we have unqualified people in those jobs.

“We want to make sure that anybody who has this certification has a job, so we are going to ensure that is done first.”
