What is Statement of Professional Standing, How to Apply and Requirement From NTC

What is a Statement of Professional Standing?
A Statement of Professional Standing is an official document that attests to your teacher certification in the Country . It confirms that your right to teach has never been suspended, revoked or cancelled.

This Statement provides the Regulator where you are seeking licensing with information with respect to your professional status as a teacher in the Country.

It informs the Regulator with respect to whether your authorization to teach has ever been taken away for disciplinary reasons or whether you would still be welcome to teach in a particular state or Country.

When will I Require a Statement of Professional Standing issued by the NTC?

When applying for a teacher’s license outside of Ghana, you may be asked to provide a Statement of Professional Standing from NTC.

Who will Require a Statement of Professional Standing?

The regulatory body responsible for licensing teachers in the jurisdiction where you are
planning to teach will require a Statement of Professional Standing.

In Ghana Teachers are licensed through the National Teaching Council (NTC) also in all Canadian provinces and territories, with the exception of Ontario, teachers are licensed through a branch of government; typically through the ministry of education. In Ontario, the teaching profession is self-regulated and you must apply to the Ontario College of Teachers for your license to teach in that province.

Internationally, in some countries teachers are licensed through a central or regional body or
through a college of teachers.
